News from Room 105
Today we had the chance to watch an African dance group perform at our school. It was also Read Across America reading celebration and we read and/or listened to a lot of stories. We spent some time reading on our own and we were able to watch all kinds of different people from all over our county read to us over Skype. We will be reading lots of Dr. Seuss books next week, practiced rhyming and created our own cat in the hat. You will find attached a list of the different ways we will celebrate our Dr. Seuss week.
Come and join us on Thursday evening for Bedtime, Books, and Brownies. The teachers have a great time dressing up and reading to the children. Visit our room to hear me read Llama, Llama Red Pajamas and see Mrs. Perry, Mrs. Palmer and I dressed in our red pajamas.
Our media center is hosting a book fair next week. If your child will be purchasing a book please send the money in an envelope or Ziploc bag marked for the book fair.
Please make sure that your child brings a coat to school every day. It has not usually hit the high temperature for the day when we go out for recess at 9:30 and our playground is like a wind tunnel so there is always a cold breeze blowing.
We have continued to work on cvc words this week and will continue this unit for a few more weeks. We will also continue to work on our sight words and writing over the coming weeks.
We have been working on subtraction this week. We will continue to work on this for the next two weeks.
INTEGRATED STUDIES: We finished our unit on Teeth this week. We also learned about the weather lore story of the lion and the lamb. The saying goes that if March comes in like a lion it will go out like a lamb and vise versa if it comes in like a lamb. We will be learning about Dr. Seuss next week and doing some fun activities that relate to his books.
We used goldfish to learn how to subtract this week.
