Great day! We read a wonderful story called Thunder Cake, by Patricia Polacco, about a little girl who was afraid of thunder. Ask Me About how the Babushka in the story helps the little girl get over her fear of thunder. I'll be posting the recipe for Thunder Cake later this evening on the website under Arts Integration. The Arts Integration tab is a great place to go to learn about special books, music and art we have be using in our classroom. We also learned about identifying the beginning, middle and end of a story. The beginning is how the story gets started, usually with the main character having a problem. Usually the middle part of the story is the biggest part. This is where the problem is developed more. It's really the meat of the story. The ending of the story is how it all worked out. How did the problem get solved and what happened with the main character.
We practiced writing our names the kindergarten way, using a capital letter to begin the name and the remainder of the letters lower case. We also practiced writing no and to, our two word wall words we are working on this week.
We went to the media center today. Monday is our media day but library books can be returned any day.
Have a great afternoon!
