This week we ended the first quarter and looked forward to the start of November. It was a relatively quiet week in our classroom. We had a great day off on Tuesday and enjoyed learning with our friends.
A huge congratulations to Riley for learning all your red rainbow sight words and graduating up to orange! We are also so proud of Shawn for learning all his orange words and graduating up to yellow! Keep up the great work!
Thank you to all of the parents for coming out to parent teacher conferences. We had a wonderful time touching base about our first quarter progress.
Reading: We started working to develop questions about the books we read. We also worked to answer questions about what we just read. We learned that questions start with special “question words”.
Writing: We continued reviewing all of our letters and are working to write our names very neatly.
Math: We started learning how to compare sets of things using the words more, less, and the same. As a bonus, we learned how the symbols for more and less look like an alligator mouth and that the alligator always wants to eat more. We can also make alligator mouths with our arms.
Social Studies: We learned all about the past and how different things were back then. We were very surprised to learn that people didn’t have computers or iPhones in the past.
Reading: We will continue increasing our comprehension of stories we read by asking and answering questions about books we read. We will also be working on word ending sounds.
Writing: We will be working on a review of our letters.
Math: We will continue working to compare sets of numbers using the greater, less than, or equal.
Social Studies: We will learn all about the holiday of Thanksgiving and how we celebrate it.
