We started our Read-a-Thon today! We had D.E.A.R. time today and read for ten minutes. During this time, the children are allowed to choose their books. We will do this every day for the next two weeks as part of our Read-a-Thon. We will be focusing on Mo Willems' Piggie and Elephant books during the Read-a-Thon. We practiced drawing Piggie and Elephant today. We watched a video that showed Mo Willems drawing Piggie. I tried, the best I could, to show them how to draw Elephant. Here's a video that shows Mo demonstrating how to draw Piggie's face.
We also reviewed counting syllables in words. The kids have fun using their index fingers to clap out the number of syllables in words. We also reviewed reading consonant, vowel, consonant words. In math, we reviewed using the words more and fewer to describes sets of objects.
Have a nice evening!
