We had a great day! I chose everyone as Star Students. We reviewed counting syllables. This is important because we will be reading longer words that can be broken up to read them more easily, and will be used when we are writing longer words so we can pound out the syllables, then tap out the sounds to write the word. Ask me to show you how I can pound out the syllables on the words below.
We listened to a story today to practice visualizing and listening to story details to answer questions. This was not a picture book, but a story I read orally. We stopped along the way to draw sketches to show what was happening in the story. The story is called Why Hippo Lives in the Water, and it is a Nigerian folktale. Ask me to show you the pictures I drew and to tell you the story.
In math, we drew a picture of a stuffie, or the Eiffel Tower, and measured different parts with our cubes. We wrote the length of the parts, along with a picture of a cube to represent the units, on our picture. Ask me to show you my picture and how I can measure.
Have a nice evening!
