We discussed the attributes (characteristics) of a square and drew a square in our environment.
We also continued to explore our manipulatives while Mrs. Elkins and Mrs. Amos assessed letter names, letter sounds, numbers 0-20, and shapes.
After lunch we worked on our Color Rubric.
What does good coloring look like?
We came up with these 4 things.
Adding details is a big deal. The more detail in your pictures = more detail in your writing later on. We discussed things like...
your arms and legs do not come out of your head, that you have a body
you are wearing clothes, put clothes on you in your picture
put hair on your person, etc
I always ask "Is your person standing in an empty, white room?" . If not, you need to add details in the background of your picture.
I also added you use the number of colors that match your age. For example, if you are 4 your picture must have AT LEAST 4 colors, if you are 5 your picture must have AT LEAST 5 colors.
We also read Wemberley Worried. Poor Wemberley worries about everything! We made a list of things we worried about. We finished the sentence starter- I worry about ______ and illustrated.
