I hope you had a wonderful week. We ended January with a bang! Get ready for a very busy month of February. Please see the "reminders" at the bottom of this post so that you are able to plan ahead! I am so excited to say that Ashley Whipple found us a great chair for the Art Walk! Now we just need to work together to design and decorate it! If you have any ideas or would like to participate with this project, please let me know!
Another celebration we have is that our school hours for next year are officially 7:50am-2:50pm. I know there are some mixed feelings about this, but I personally am very happy about this! I was at a school last year that went until 3:40 and it was a very long day for the kiddos. We might have to wake up a little earlier, but there will be so much time after school to get things done and get in activities!
This week we got into 3D shapes! We sorted shapes and then went on a scavenger hunt around the school! We also worked on a cute map project where we sorted and color-coded our continents. Here are some pictures from this week!
Reading: Next week we will be reading Frog and Toad Together. Our phonics skill will be -ink, -ank, -unk. Our focus skill will be story structure.
Math: Next week we will start our unit on telling time to the hour and half hour. Some key vocabulary words will be:
Writing: We will be using Write From the Beginning to tell about friendship. We will follow up with a narrative telling what makes someone a good friend!
Grammar: Our focus in Grammar will be subject pronouns.
