We are studying life in the past, present and future. We studied this photographs of some schools from the past. We talked about what we noticed in the classroom and how it is different from our classroom. Ask me to tell you about what I noticed and what I learned.
In math, we continue to compare sets of objects. We are talking about more, less, fewer, as well as how many more or fewer as we dig deeper into the concepts. We talked about a strategy we can use when we are compare actual objects. The children need to be careful to line up the objects so they can be easily compared. We are also looking at groups of items and finding clusters of items that we don't need to count because we know how many are there without counting. There are a few math games online the children played to help reinforce that concept. Please check out our Homework page on the website, or go to our Google classroom to have your child play those games at home.
We continued our study of Mo Willems books. We read Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus. We noticed how the words in the talking bubbles are written in different ways to cue the reader to read them either louder, softer, or with more expression. We wrote our own talking bubbles to share something else The Pigeon might demand. We used all upper case letters and made them bold, with yellow crayon for emphasis.
We will continue to read Mo Willems books next week!
Don't forget, Monday is the 100th day of school. If you choose to have your child do a project, they can bring it in on Monday. I sent the directions for the project home last week but will send it again today. This is optional! I know there is a lot going on right now!
Have a great weekend!
