Odds and Ends:

Last week Mrs. Giles taught us about how we use our whole bodies when we listen. This week we have been specifically working on listening with our eyes, ears, and brain. We have also worked on listening to directions, 2-3 step, and repeating them to ourselves to help us remember. 

 
We are up to 8 minutes of reading stamina without getting bored or distracted! Our goal is to get to 15-20 by MEA break! When we reach 10 minutes, I am going to introduce some of our flexible seating options they may use while they read to self. Keep encouraging reading at home too! We talked about how we may not be able to read all of the words yet, but we can use the pictures to retell a familiar story, read the pictures and make up our own story, find our sight words in the books we read, etc. 

 

 

Reading:

This week we continued to work on rhyming and name recognition. Next week we will talk about the difference between words, sentences, and letters. We will  learn the sight words like, to, and go. 
These are the sight words we have introduces so far: a, am, I, is, the, & see. We learn 100 sight words in kindergarten so we do start early, but give ourselves time for review weeks as well as time at the end of the year for review! 

Math:

This week we went the the computer lab for the first time. We will get to use the computer lab every Monday for math. I introduced math center where we worked on making numbers with pattern blocks, making patterns with apple jacks, and using team work to play a math game. Next week we will continue to build our number sense with numbers up to ten.
