Please check out the photo gallery for the pictures of all the fun activities we have had the last couple of weeks :)
In reading, we have been talking about voice in the stories and making predictions. In writing, we have been continuing to work on writing stories about ourselves. Working hard on writing sentences using our sight words we know and stretching out the sounds that we hear in words. They are doing great!
In Math, we have finished up going through the teen numbers and learning about number 20. Ask your child to sing the "Teen numbers start with a 1" rap, it's great!
I really enjoyed meeting with each family to discuss your little one. I know how important they are to you all and I feel very privileged to get to work with them everyday. I just adore each of them and their unique personalities. :)
Now the nuts and bolts:)
LITTLE BIRD TALES-At home project
I will start sending home an Ipad on Fridays with one student. This is a project that needs to be completed and turned back in on the following Monday. We are using the app Little Bird Tales to create a story "All About _______ (your child)" You will need to help your child complete this activity by taking 6 pictures:
- Picture 1-Your Child
- Picture 2-Your House
- Picture 3-Room
- Picture 4-Animal (or stuffed animal)
- Picture 5-Favorite Toy
- Picture 6-Family
After taking the pictures you will record your child narrating their story. Very detailed directions will be sent home with your child when it is their turn to complete the activity. Below are the dates of the first few students who will be taking the Ipads home on Friday and returning them with their completed project on Monday.
On Friday, Gabriel will take the iPad home to complete the project.
