Ask me all about Math Workshop! We are working so hard on measuring, counting, and comparing. You should hear our math conversations!!!! Mrs. Brady says it sounds like 3rd grade in our room!!!!
Ask me all about our trip to the Library! We bundled up and walked to the Warren Public Library today. We read books about Thanksgiving. One was a counting book, one was a silly book about a mouse trying to steal the leftovers, and one was a 'thinking" book. It made us think about what we are thankful for. We shared our thoughts and ideas and then we wrote about it. We worked SO hard!!!
Ask me all about the letter Aa!!! It is a Super Star Vowel and it has two sounds! You have to open your mouth like you are about to take a bite of a big juicy apple...A-a-a-a-a-a-a-! We are making a book all about the letter Aa!
Ask me all about the math unit we are just finishing! We have been counting and comparing EVERYTHING!!!! We have also been putting groups of objects in order by their amount.
Today during Math Stations we compared numbers in a game called Math War, we counted objects in our inventory jars, we worked on number formation with playdoh (so when we are recording our math work we can write our numbers correctly) and we even caught, counted, and compared turkeys!!!
We love math!!!!!!!!!!
Ask me all about Veteran's Day! We have been so busy getting ready for the Warren School Veteran's Day Luncheon. (It's on Monday!) Kindergarten is going to lead the Pledge of Allegiance!!!
Today we wrote thank you notes, painted flags, and practiced singing MANY patriotic songs!!! It has been a lot of work, but also a lot of fun! We can not wait to shower the local Veterans with love and respect on Monday!!!
Ask me all about my reading strategies!!!! Did you know I have a special Reading Finger? An Eagle Eye? Fish Lips?
In Reader's Workshop, we are sharing just Right books. Books that are perfect for beginning readers. We are learning to find the words on the page, check the picture with our Eagle Eye, get our mouth ready with our Fish Lips, and point to the word(s) as we read them. It is amazing how much we have learned this week!!!
In Fact, next week we will start bringing our Just Right Books home each night to read to you!!! We are so excited!!!
Ask me all about our Sound Stretchers!!! In Writing, we have been listening carefully and writing down the sounds that we hear. Sound Stretchers REALLY help us! We hold the Sound Stretcher up to our ear, just like a telephone. Next we say a word "Slowly like a turtle" and it helps us hear the sounds...then we write down the letters that we need!!! It's a Cool Tool!!!!
Ask me all about my day...it was so busy!!!!!!!!!!!
We had a visit from the 5th graders. They came to teach us all about the brain and learning. We talked about having a Growth Mindset and how learning something new SHOULD be hard work.
During Wellness today we made Pumpkin Pancakes! They were so healthy! We learned that pumpkin is good for your brain!!! We used whole wheat flour and our Angevine Farm pumpkins!!!
Today was also Election Day!!! We voted for the Warren School Student Council president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. The whole school got together to listen to speeches and and learn about voting. Our morning meeting Word of the Day was VOTE. Click on the link below to watch the quick video.
