We had a busy morning trying to tape our opposites two part reading. Unfortunately, the screen version we practiced yesterday was different than the copy I gave them on paper. So we will try again on Monday. In the meantime, here's a little song for your enjoyment!
I'll try and use a tripod so it's not so shaky, and a wide angle lens next time so the kids don't have to be so close together. They really love this song. Mr. Sheets did a great job teaching it to them!
We did some word work today. We looked for words with silent e in them in a short poem. We made a list of words that end with ake.
We also practiced some of the trickier red words we have been working with in reading. We practiced said, here and you.
We have been learning about folktales and the messages in them. Today we read Petite Rouge: A Cajun Red Riding Hood, by Mike Artell. We talked about the message in the story and how the story is the same and different from the traditional Red Riding Hood story we know. The children are bringing home the postcard for Louisiana.
Mrs. Kanter came in for a lesson with us today about names. The children listened to Mrs. Kanter read Alma and How She Got her Name, by Juana Martinez-Neal. The little girl in the story, Alma Sofia Esperanza José Pura Candela, learns about how special her very long name is and how her parents decided on the names. The children decorated their names and put a checkmark by three statements about what they know about their name.
Have a relaxing weekend!
