We had some fun in math this morning by looking at slides with dots on them and subitizing them! We finally got to use our dry erase markers and white boards for this activity, so that made it even more fun!
We spent some more time practicing Read to Self today! We added another step to the station today by filling out our literacy station spiral. For read to self, we write the title of the book and then a sentence about it!
We are also learning how to choose "best fit" books to read. We are going to be learning a song called The "I PICK Rap" to help us remember what the letters in the PICK stand for. Today we learned about the letters.
We are going to do a narrative writing piece about things that have changed in our lives! To help us gather ideas, we made a circle map of things that can change.
We will do the writing piece by starting with a picture. We drew our picture of something that has changed today, making sure that we add a lot of detail to it. I chose to model the activity by drawing the change with the grass in our new home. When we moved in there was none, but after a lot of hard work, now there is grass growing! A change!
We are learning about citizenship this week. We started this week out by reading the book, What If Everybody Did That? Then we talked about what rules are, why they are important, and where we have rules.
After talking about the what, why, and where, we went over the differences between these rules. We worked in groups to sort different rules into categories of at home, at school, and community laws.
Our Essential Agreements
Today we wrote our Essential Agreements. These are basically our classroom rules that we come up with all together after the first week of school. They really came up with some great rules. The process takes some time, but we did it!
