We started the week by discussing what animals do in the winter and the vocabulary that goes with it. We
discussed hibernation = sleeping all winter and migration = going south for the winter where it is warm.
We made a Canadian Goose that is going to fly south for the winter. These will be hung on the ceiling in V formation to show their migration.
We made a squirrel and a bunch of acorn nuts to help them Gather for the winter. They gather lots of nuts and snack on them all winter long. We even painted the fluffy squirrel with a fluffy painting tool!
We made a bear in his cave ready to hibernate for the winter. These bears aren't asleep yet, but you better leave them alone! We dont want them to still be hungry!
The letter of the week was Ee. We learned the sign language for a letter, the literacy link sound symbols, the letter sound, and looking at and writing it in both capital letters and lower case letters. Click here to view the many ways we learn the letter of the week!
Each week we watch letter videos from "Have Fun Teaching" and the students are really picking up the names of letters, formations, and the sounds of letters. Check out these videos with you child! Click HERE.
The Tuesday project of letter of the week is to decorate a letter with something that starts with the letter. This week we decorated the letter
E with our Elbows!! On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, E is for Elephant.

Reading with the Stars invites are out! These events are really fun for the families and the students. It allows parents to participate in their child's learning as well as children to socialize outside of school hours. Also, our AM and PM sessions are both invited to these events so it allows them to get to know each other as well.
