This week, we are really working on perfecting our pointer power. Students are noticing that the books they read have patterns, words that are the same on every page. They are using the pattern, picture, and first letter of tricky words to read new books.
How to help: Read a page or two to your child and see if they can continue to read the rest of the book.
This week, students wrote about their trip to the pumpkin patch. We used lots of sight words to make a pattern book to tell about our trip.

Students are learning about flat shapes like circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, and hexagons. Students are using words like sides, corners, points, or vertices to describe those shapes. Students are recognizing what is similar and different about shapes. Students also learned how to solve more complex and open ended number stories that can have more than one correct answer.
How to help:
Count to 30
Count backward from 20
Count on or backward from a different number other than 1
Write numbers 1 -5
Count a group of objects
Make flat shapes and make them look different. i.e. longer sides on a rectangle or triangle.
We have been talking about how to stop the spread of germs by keeping our hands clean. We talked about proper hand washing and when we need to wash hands. We also discussed where to not put our hands like mouths, noses, eyes, etc.
