Today we learned about persistence. We listened to a great story called Flight School, by Lita Judge. This story is about a penguin who wanted to learn to fly. Ask me to tell you about Penguin's feelings and how they change throughout the story, and about the surprise ending!
We played Compare today in math. This is a fun game we played with dot cards that had different groups of dots up to 10 that we looked at and tried to know how many dots there were without counting. We then played a partner game and compared cards. Whoever had the card with more dots got both cards. Miss Wolfe is sooo impressed at how well we can subitize and even describe the dot formations after just a quick peek!
We listened to a great story called One by Kathryn Otoshi that is about standing up to bullies. This book simply uses dots of color and numerals to teach a very powerful lesson about how to stand up against a bully, how to stand together as a group to make a difference, and to understand that everyone counts. A huge thank-you to Mrs. Pierre-Louis for sending this book in for our class to read. We highly recommend this book for families because it handles a big issue in a child friendly-way. The message came through loud and clear and every one had something to say about this story. Be sure to ask me about One, by Kathryn Otoshi!
A few of our friends were cold at recess. We do go outside on cold days so be sure your little munchkin leaves the house with warm layers or a coat.
Enjoy your evening!
