Sight Words: come, me
Reading: We worked on identifying the middle sound in words this week. We did this a variety of ways including rolling a picture dice and sorting using picture cards.
We also introduced a new comprehension strategy: Analyze characters within a story. We do this by first identifying the main character and then discussing what we know about them. How does he/she feel in the story, what does he/she look like, what does he/she do in the story.
Writing: This week we worked on stretching out unknown words. We know how to spell sight words, but there are other words we want to write, but aren't sure how to spell them. When this happens we teach students to stretch out the word and write every sound they hear. We practiced this skill on dry erase boards as a whole class. We then used the app, educreations to stretch out words. We used pictures related to fall like pumpkin pie and monster to use to stretch out. Check out our educreation project that we completed as a class!
Math: We introduced 3D shapes! These are different than 2D shapes in many ways. Students will need to be able to name each shape and give a real life example. This week we watched the 3D shape video, we completed the 3D shape chart together, and we sorted picture cards of 3D shapes.
Content: We learned all about spiders this week. We started out the week by scanning QR codes that brought us to videos about spiders. After learning a little bit about spiders we completed a spider tree map. Then we talked about webs and made webs with glue and glitter. On Friday we made spider hats as a fun way to end the week before Halloween.
Grandparents Day: This week we were lucky enough to have our grandparents visit and spend an hour with us. Students were able to rotate around to different stations with their grandparents. Check out all the pictures to see how much fun was had!
