It’s Been a Busy Week
This week we had lots of fun in language arts with Halloween stories. We sequenced the story, The Old Woman Who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything and made a Monster’s Monster. We used nouns and adjectives to describe what we might see on Halloween. It was a spooktacular week!
We added the words look and my to our Word Wall this week. Our sight words so far are mom, dad, up, it, I, A, go, at, to, am, me, see, can, is, like, the, red, blue, yellow, green, orange, brown, and pink .
In Language Arts our vocabulary words were rapidly, transportation, and glide.
We practiced correct formation of lower case u,i,e,l, and k.
In math we began a unit on counting strategies. We learned that to count a large group of items we can line them up and touch them as we count or we can scoot each item as we count them. On paper, we learned to check off each item as we count.
On Friday, November 9th, your child will participate in Geography Day. Each grade level will become a different country. Your child will go to one of the countries with a small group of kindergartners for the entire day. They will be in a mixed aged group of students learning about the culture, art, music, and food of that country. If your child has a lunch account, it will follow them to the correct country. If they bring lunch, they will take it with them. It is VERY important that your child arrive on time Friday so they can start the day promptly. Students will be returned to kindergarten at the end of the day for dismissal.
Spanish – Stanfield
We learned some Spanish words for things related to Halloween by singing the song, “Los Monstruos.” We learned that bat is murcielago, witch is bruja, ghost is fantasma, vampire is vampiro, monster is monstruo and black cat is gato negro.
We then practiced our color words by coloring pictures of our Halloween palabras, (words.)
Science – Gonzales
We began our study of force and motion by examining pushes and pulls. We learned that friction slows down pushes and pulls.
Science – Manning
This week we learned that force is a push or pull on an object and that motion, or the movement form one place or position, requires force.
All 3 classes could use snacks. Please no goldfish. We have plenty!
