Today we had a social emotional learning lesson about self-control. We talked about what the word self-control and the word resist means. We watched a short video with Cookie Monster to help us understand the words better.
We continued our lesson in reading by listening to the story Oh No, George by Chris Haughton. We studied the cover and thought about the title and made predictions about what the story would be about, then we checked and modified our predictions as we read. Ask me to tell you what George did at the beginning of the story that showed he was still learning about self-control. Here's the book trailer about this book if you would like a reminder of the story or if parents would like to see what a great book this is!
In math, we are beginning to work with decomposition and number composition. We are also working with writing the numerals. We used numeral poems about how to form the numerals.
In Science, we talked about the sun and how it warms up pavement. We visualized and used our memories to think about how the pavement feels when it's hot out. Ask me to tell you how the feet probably feel in each of these photos. Will they feel the same?
Have a nice evening!
