During writing time they are starting to; visualize places and people to write about, tell their story across pages, add words (letters) to their pictures, rehearse what they want to say about what they wrote, take turns sharing their ideas and writing with partners and showing movement in their drawings for a fun effect. We talked a lot this week about being BRAVE writers and adding more and more letters to our words and words to our sentences.
Animated Alphabet is our approach to phonemic awareness and spelling. The letters are taught through a multi sensory approach of music, dance, characters and signs which help the students hold onto that information. The characters this week were Arnie Aardvark and Jenny Jaguar.
In math we are getting to know numbers 0-31, sorting, using math manipulatives, identifying shapes around us, putting together is addition and taking apart is subtraction and continuing our calendar routines. Our routines at calendar time include; counting to the calendar number of the day, weather observations, tracking the number of days we have been in school and days of the week.
We are learning about the Woolwich Way! The Woolwich Way is made up of 6 qualities that will help us to be the best we can be!
