We started our day studying this photograph of a bear. We thought about what was happening in the photo to get an idea of what the bear might be thinking, and what it would say if it could talk. We practiced saying our idea with expression to help us know what kind of punctuation we should use in our talking bubble. Ask me to tell you what I think this bear might say.
In math, we continued to work with counting on one-more. We also used number cards and put them in order from smallest to largest, then largest to smallest. We played a game with our cards. Our partner showed a card, and we found a card in our stack that was one more.
In reading, we compared two texts, a realistic fiction book and an information text. We looked for ways they were the same and different. The kids did a great job and came up with many similarities and differences. We practiced our sight word like and wrote I Like books. The children are bringing these home today. Some children may want to finish the illustrations in their book. Ask me to show you my book.
In our reading groups, we are working with Reader's Theater. The children are assigned parts to read. They know which line to read because it has a colored dot beside it. They are working to read fluently and with expression. We will be finishing up with this next week.
Have a great weekend!
