We continue to learn about culture, traditions and holidays. We focused today on Mother's Day. We read the book Saturday, by Oge Mora. This book is beautiful with collage illustrations. This is the story of a mother and daughter who have special things they do every Saturday since the mother works the other six days of the week. One special Saturday has some bumps in the road, and nothing seems to go as planned. Ask me to tell you what happens and how the story ends.
In math we worked with digi-blocks and modeled numbers to 20. We are saying "one ten three" and 13, to emphasize place value. This is giving them a good visual of what that number really is and it's place value.
In social studies we read the book Soul Food Sunday, by Winsome Bingham. This book tells the story of a family that has Sunday dinner together every week. The granny in the story teaches her young grandson how to make soul food. She gives him important tasks and then praises him for a job well done. Ask me to tell you what kinds of soul food they made.
Have a nice evening!
