Happy March!

In celebration of Dr. Seuss, we read as many books of his that we could! We also did a writing activity about what we would do if Thing 1 and Thing 2 came to our house. These were fun to read!

This week will be focusing in on:

 1. Letter Dd
2. New popcorn words: could, she, all
3. Cause/Effect
4. Number Partners
5. Math Mountains
6. Writing numbers 1-31
7. Writing Sentences (Uppercase/Endmark)

This Friday is our Read-a-thon Kick Off! More information will be coming home regarding our read-a-thon on this day.

Have a wonderful night! :)

See you in your pjs!

We guessed the mystery reader correctly first today! Everyone received their very own book to take home! Wahoo!

So fun!

Have a wonderful night! :)

Today's math lesson was all about math stories. We found answers by making circle drawings and creating number sentences. They are getting really good at these.

Room 7 made their very own book today! It was inspired by our guest reader's story yesterday, Sneezy the Snowman. Take a peek at some sample pages! These were so fun to make!

 We worked with endmarks.

We also worked with tally marks and comparing. 

This afternoon it was our turn to visit the school counselor for our guidance lesson. We finished up the day with a snack!

Check your child's backpack for an exciting note!

 Have a wonderful night! :)
