Writing Workshop This week, we began to tell true stories. Students had to begin thinking about things that they did or things that happened to them. We practiced telling our stories using our best storytelling voice. Students then planned out their stories by touching and saying what they planned to write on each blank page of a booklet. Then they went off to write down their own stories. Some of us are adding more and more labels and even trying to add a sentence to tell about our pictures! Our partners helped us by giving us a tip to make our stories better or a compliment our writing.
Math Workshop We began our new math unit on counting and cardinality in numbers 0 to 3. Students learned that once you have counted a group of objects in a vertical column and rotate it horizontally, that you still have the same amount of objects! There is no need to recount since you did not add or take any away (conservation of number). Students used a math tool called a Rekenrek and learned how to decompose 3 into groups like 1 and 2 is 3. We also learned the meaning of zero through exploration. Students learned how to write the numerals 0-3. You can practice this skill at home!
We have learned how to properly form and make the sound associated with the letters i and u.
i - itch /i/ and u- up /u/
Letters: t b, f, m, n, i, u
Snap Words: I, a, the, to
