We had a super FUN Friday today! To end our unit on apples we made homemade applesauce! Each student helped cut up a few apple slices and put them in the slow cooker. We added some cinnamon, sugar, and let it cook for about 4 hours. Our classroom smelled delicious! Most of the class tried the applesauce and enjoyed it.
Yesterday, we went to the book fair preview to check out all the new books. They took home their “wish list “on Thursday. Check out the book fair hours on the Coyote Courier or on the homework sheet.
There are two important items coming home today in the folder. First, is the permission form for our field trip to Ashland Berry Farm on 10/26! The cost of the trip is $8 per student. You can go online to pay OR send in a check made out to KES for $8. The second item is a large cut out of a person. I explained to the class today that we will learn about community helpers next week. Their only homework for the week will be to transform this cut out into something they want to be when they grow up. Look for more detailed instructions in the orange folder.
Highlights from the week:
In language arts, we focused on the Hh and Cc sound. We also learned that non-fiction books have a table of contents and what that means. The class is continuing to do an amazing job staying on task and working together during their literacy centers. We have started to write more and learning how to s-t-r-e-t-c-h out our words to hear all the sounds. Next week we will focus on the letters Ll and Kk.
~In math, our focus was on counting sets of 10 and building numbers 1-5. We played a couple fun hands on games to help us learn this skill as well as showing what we know on paper. Next week we will be learning about describe the location and orientation of things.
~In social studies and science, we learned about the apple like cycle and Johnny Appleseed. We made apples and labeled all the parts, read books, watched a Brain Pop Jr., and of course made apple sauce! We will learn about community helpers next week!
Have a great three day weekend!
