We have finally finished the formal assessments we have had to do and can now go about our day without interruption! We can work on reinforcing a normal schedule and routines!
Today we worked with the /r/ in Really Great Reading. We also worked more with peeling off the beginning sound of words and putting them together with the rest of the words. We read a beautiful book about a robot called The Robot and the Bluebird. We determined the book was fiction and talked more about what robots are really like and that they don't have feelings like the robot in this book. While I was testing I had the children draw robots. Some of the children often say they can't draw, so I showed them some robots made of simple shapes and encouraged them to try and put shapes together to make robots.
In math we worked with hidden partners and talked more about two parts being put together to make the whole. We also worked with numbers and found more than one set of hidden partners.
Have a great evening!
