Odds and Ends:

This week we talked about using self talk to help remind ourselves of directions or to help remind us to stay focused. 


We also talked about how it is okay not to know how to do something yet. We read a book called Giraffe's Can't Dance. In the book, the giraffe thought he was a bad dancer but it turned out he just hadn't found the best song for him yet. We brainstormed some things we couldn't do yet and talked about how we can get better at those things with practice. Reading came up as something we want to learn how to do better. We talked about how we will practice all year so we can all become wise readers. 

Image result for everybody is a reader some just havent found the right book

 
We are up to 10 minutes of reading stamina without getting bored or distracted! We reached our first goal so are celebrating by using our flexible seating options around the room during read to self time. Next week we will continue to practice 10 minutes of reading each day before we try to move past ten. 

 

Please remember if your child is bringing home those paper books with sight words highlighted that those are books that can stay at home. Books that have a stamp in the front cover or a label on the back with my name on them, should be returned to school each day so I can make sure my library stays stocked with books for everybody to enjoy! 

 

 Reading:

This week we talked about the difference between words, sentences, and letters. We practiced counting how many words were in a sentence before we read. We talked a lot about how letters look different, therefore different letter make different words.

 

Next week sight words: can, in, my


These are the sight words we have introduces so far: a, am, I, is, the, see, like, to & go . 

Math:

This week in centers we worked on sorting, graphing, and subitizing. Subitizing is a math strategy that allows students to recognize numbers in many different formations. Examples such as Image result for subitizing help students build number sense. The goal is that they can recognize the number without actually having to count 1 by 1 to see the number represented.
