We started our day with another song. The children had expressed an interest in how the muppets/puppets for Sesame Street work and if they are real. So I showed this other song from the Sesame Street 50th Anniversary Concert. These poor kids have to listen to so many stories from my childhood, but I had to tell them about my amazing music teacher Miss Ogrand. She would put on these huge shows that involved the entire school, K-6, each year. One she did was a Sesame Street show. Each of the chorus members brought a tube sock to school and we made a muppet. We had lots of songs to memorize, this song being one of them. We watched the video of Sing today, practiced singing it a little, then worked with words with ing. We also worked with illustrating the song by showing the children singing in the pictures. The children came up with several different ways including making quarter notes, talking/singing bubbles, and open mouths. The children did such a great job with their illustration and writing 5 words with ing on their poem paper.
We are so proud of DC9. S/He branched last night at 7:36 which means both her/his feet left the nest and went up on a branch. It seemed effortless when you look at the video. S/He stayed up there a bit, looked around, looked down and worried me, and then went back down into the nest. DC9 spends a lot of time on the railings of the nest. S/He is just over 8 weeks old now.
We voted on a name for DC9. Each table group, shown by the paw print, gets one vote. We had some ties, so we will be submitting a vote for each name.
In math, we worked to catch mistakes in counting and fix them up. We solved a story problem and wrote a number sentence and number bond. We played a game with dice to make number bonds too.
Have a nice evening!
