Sept. 17 - 21

This week we are moving into the 20s! 20 days of school that is. I am so proud of all that they are doing and how hard they are working. We are moving right along with Daily Five. So far we have done Read to Self, Word Work, and Listen to Reading. It is an independent time when the kiddos are working to improve their literacy skills. I am beyond thrilled at what they can do already. It makes me so excited to think about what they will be like by December. Wow! Here's a sneak peak at our week...

In reading we will...
  • Learn the letter "A"
  • Draw an ax
  • Learn the letter "D"
  • Draw a dad
In math we will...
  • Use shapes to show a number
  • Practice completing dot-to-dots
In science/social studies we will...
  • Continue our 5 senses unit by exploring taste, smell, and sound
  • Discuss the American flag and what it means
  • Discuss the pledge of allegiance
