We spent some time with one small group today getting on to the Really Great Reading Playground. This site offers the children a variety of games to play by the units we are studying. We had to ask for help about logging on and luckily it was a quick fix. The thing that took our friends the longest was logging on so if you still have the paper keyboard, please have your child practice logging on so they don't lose time working on the website because they are taking a long time to log on. I'll be pulling two more groups tomorrow I hope to get started. The good thing is I have a few friends who will be able to help other children know what to do so they can help each other. This class LOVES working as a team.
We talked more about leaders today, specifically presidents. We learned about George Washington. Ask me to tell you something I learned about George Washington.
We worked more with counting accuracy and determining a counting path. We talked about circular groups and that thinking about the circle as a clock and starting the count at 1 and stopping at the top where the 12 would be is a good way to remember where you started. We are working on accuracy so being sure they don't skip an item or count it twice is important. We continued to work with scattered groups.
Have a nice evening!
