We started our day with a very sweet short video story called Joy. We practiced retelling this story, identifying the problem which is what gets the story going, and middle part of the story where the problem is trying to be worked out, and the ending which tells how it all turned out. Ask me to retell the story.
We talked about what the message in this story, then shared with our partenr/s our favorite part of the video. Then I asked children to tell what their partners favorite part was, which is always a good reminder that listening is as important as talking.
We listened to a very short fable, Crow Learns a Lesson, about a crow and a fox. We talked about how the fox tricked the crow into dropping the cheese. Ask me to tell you the story..
We read a poem about a hamster and highlighted all the th's in the poem. It's really important the children are able to see the th together and know they will make one sound, /th/ and not individual sounds.
In math, we worked with subtraction more, and practiced writing a subtraction number sentence. We listened to story problems and used pictures or symbols to solve the problem. The children did a really great job with this! We also practiced writing missing numbers to 100.
We had a great day!
Have a nice evening!
