These Weeks We . . .            

·      were introduced to 4 letters, Ii, Uu, Mm, and Nn. We practiced their sound and how to write them, we talked about vowels and why they are special letters 

·      read the book “Lunch” and “I Like” added “like”, and “to” to our word wall, ASK MEto read my copy I brought home to you and let’s find a special place to keep all my books I bring home

·      used magnetic boards to find the sounds we learned and practiced putting our letters in ABC order

·      worked hard on learning the meaning of numbers 0 to 5, we practiced making sets, writing them, 3 ways to represent them with objects, the number itself and the word and used counters to solve problems  

·      talked about the seasons and welcomed Fall

·      at Reader’s Workshop– we sing a special gathering song, and then go to the rug for a mini-lesson where we learn something new to help us with learning to read. We learned you read starting with the cover and go to the next page, then the next till the end and we learned about rereading our books to discover more interesting information and it is always good to add a “pinch” of you to a story

·      Heard the story of Chrysanthemum, we compared how many letters in our name, and her name and heard why we got our name. Used rip art to make a big chrysanthemum flower. 

·      started our science unit on Trees and Weather, we went outside and observed the trees in our schoolyard then illustrated what we saw, learned about the parts of a tree and what they are for and wrote them in our science notebook.We adopted a tree to watch all year to see how it will change during the seasons and then we will illustrate it in our science notebooks

·      had Computers with Mrs. MacKenzie and played the refrigerator game and practiced click and dragging to spell our name
