We had a super stellar month of September, and October is off to a fantastic start!
Every student had the chance to be our “Beaming Bee” of the day. We enjoyed learning about one another, studying the letters & sounds in our names, and being the daily helper. Now, we have daily Hive Helpers. Calendar helper is one of our favorite jobs!
Our Shapes unit was a fantastic review for most of us. We talked a lot about shapes’ attributes and used snack foods to make a variety of shapes with both straight lines and curves.
We really enjoyed our study of the five senses. In addition to activities to use our senses of sight, hearing, smell, and touch, we also did a taste test to experience four basic tastes: salty, sweet, sour, and bitter. Our sour lemon faces were priceless!
We began this month in a super fun way- using our C.O.W. laptops for the first time. We did an excellent job logging in and following the many steps it took to get to the best part… playing games! We practiced clicking, dragging, and using the track pad as we made funny faces.
We also used the apples you sent in to do many math activities, which culminated in making our own APPLESAUCE! It was delicious!
We are also enjoying Math Stations in which we are practicing writing and recognizing numbers, as well as counting. LOTS of counting!
It is especially exciting to use the Promethean Board!
