Today we read Splish! Splash! A Book about Rain, to learn more about rain and the water cycle. We thought about the word cycle and connected it to bicycle. We know that bicycles have wheels, which will help us remember what a cycle does. Ask me to tell you about the word cycle. We will be learning more about the water cycle this week. We continued on our reading journey across the United States and learned about George Washington by visiting Virginia and reading Where Is George Washington, by Carla Heysmfeld. The story is told through the eyes of a cat who lives at Mount Vernon. We compared life at Mount Vernon with life in Potomac today. We found differences in the way people dressed, cooked, washed clothes, and traveled from place to place.
Today we visited with Mrs. Kanter again! Mrs. Kanter told us about Red Ribbon Week next week. We talked about living a healthy life. Mrs. Kanter read The Berenstain Bears Go to the Doctor. We wrote about what we do to stay healthy. We made sure our pictures matched our words.
Today we started a mini-unit of measuring in math. We made counting sticks of ten cubes and compared objects around the room to find things that were about ten cubes tall or long. We also practiced writing the number 6 today.
Don't forget tomorrow is library day, so please bring your library book back to school. Please remember to bring your Read to Me, Talk to Me book back in the big ziplock bag I sent it home in as well. Your child will pick a new book on Wednesday.
Enjoy your evening!
