I have seen a great deal of learning happening in our room lately.
Students are using the centers correctly, role playing, and really taking material we have already taught and expanding on it in the centers. I began teaching the students addition with drawing bubbles (circles) for the numbers in the equation and then counting how many in all. I taught them this on our board, but then how they could do it on on their own in the centers. Students are really enjoying it! It is amazing what they enjoy if they have dry erase markers. :) Also, students are working on number to dot matching with Easter eggs in this center. Great learning happening!
We also really enjoyed our shaving cream day! Some students were writing letters (really working on correctly forming the letters rather than just making them however they want) or sight words and words they can spell phonetically. They love shaving cream! Thank you to those who donated the shaving cream!
Following our letter of the week project (one more week left!) we will be starting our number of the week books. These books will consist of putting the correct amount of stickers on the number, draw that many objects, and cut that number out of the magazines. We need your help! Please send magazines or ads (ads seem to have the most numbers). Sunday ads would be perfect! Thank you!
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 Z with zig-zags. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, Z is for Zebra.
Please note, as always, the Hortonville Public Library hosts free events for kids! Check them out on your days off and have some fun family bonding time! The link below brings you to the sites "kids" page.
