Today we studied these pictures to determine how they go together. The children noticed moms were in every picture right away, but then after looking at each of the pictures they determined these pictures showed just some of the many things mom do for their children every single day. We then thought of adjectives that describe moms and made a long list. The students then thought of their moms and began a flipbook for their mom with adjectives they picked from the list or thought of themselves. The children worked very hard on the books and are anxious to use colored pencils to color-in their drawings on Friday.
In math we worked on story problems. We worked with problems where the sum was known, but the addends were not. For example, "Miss Wolfe has seven jellybeans. Some are red, and some are green. How many of each color could she have?" For this, children are using what they know about decomposing to find possible answers. 7= 1 + 6, 7 = 2 + 5, etc.
Have a nice evening!
