This week we started SCIENCE, and the students seemed to really enjoy "making observations" about items classmates brought in. We talked about how we use our 5 senses to make these observations about things all around us. Please continue to send in items for us to observe!
In math, we have been talking about the number 4 this week. We also started sorting items by characteristics (color, size, shape). Up next... number 5!
In reading, the students have made it between 5-10 minutes of silent sustained READ TO SELF. This is our 1st Daily 5 activity that we have learned and practiced. Next week we will be starting WORD WORK, which is where they will learn to write and read sight words. I will be introducing the words, I and THE.
Over all it has been another great week here in Kindergarten! The students are doing a great job learning our rules and expectations. If you ever have any questions about what we are doing or how it's going please do not hesitate to contact me :)
