Classroom Update

Updated on May 8th  , 2017

On this site I will give a general overview of or week in the classroom. This should help you to be aware of what we are working on and talk to your child about their school day.

Phonics- Leo the Lion this week reviewed the two different sounds oo makes. We introduced the goo card and the foot card. As we learn these sounds, we are applying them as we write. 

Reading workshop- We have just started our second bend in our character unit. We have been using different books to discuss what the characters are like and also find evidence to show how we know about them. 

We are also using the voice mic to record our reading. After recording and listening- We ask ourselves what did I do well? What can I work on?

Writing Workshop- The children are learning how to write realistic fiction books. We started this unit learning the difference between realistic fiction and fantasy. After we created a character, setting, problem and solution for our stories. We continue to work on our series if books using the same character.

Math- We have just begun topic 12 learning about non standard measurement using cubes and other objects. We are also introducing identifying and counting coins. 

Continue to practice lines for our play The Little Red Hen
