I'm having some trouble blogging at school. I'm being blocked by a filter, but I'm working on trying to find another way to get in! So in the meantime, I'll try and blog when I get home.
Today we went to the Book Fair. The children had a great time looking at books and adding them to their Wish List. This Wish List is in their folder. You can send in money with them to buy books if you want, or you can come to the Book Fair Tuesday or Wednesday evening from 6-8.
This morning, we started our day looking at this cutie! We used this photograph to think about a story to go with the title. We shared our stories and titles with a partner, then shared a few with the whole class. Readers use pictures to help themselves understand stories or get more information, and writers use illustrations to help tell their story. We are working on both of these things in reading and writing. Ask me to tell you a story about this photograph!
Friday I introduced the greater than and less than symbol, as well as reviewed the equal sign. We are comparing sets of items as well as numbers. Here is an easy way for children to remember these symbols.
Have a nice evening!
