Our Rooms

We are working on learning where we live (address and city). We read a few pages of Me on the Map and then. Drew a map of our bedrooms and labeled it. 







Math Workshop

We have worked really hard on working with our math partners and sharing our work using our math vocabulary! I am so proud!! 


Math Stations

Station 1: Smartbord 
We are working on sorting by color and size. Then putting our objects in order from least to greatest. 

Station 2: Making 5
Students roll a number cube (0-5)and build only on their 5 frame. 
If they roll a 2 , they place 2 counters in their 5 frame and say I have 2, I need 3. 


Station 3: estimation 
We are estimating how many inch cubes we think it will take to fill our shape, then filling out shapes and seeing how close we were! 



Station 4: Crossout to 9
We are using 10 SIDED DICE! We roll the dice and cross out the number. This helps us see sets as numbers. 

Station 5: roll and record 
We are rolling 2 dice to practice counting. 


Station 6: iPads 
We are still working on find sum. This is a great app to help with making 10. 

Station 7: computer 
We are using Starfall or IXL

Station 8: Sorring by attributes 
We are sorting out buttons by color, size, shape, or the amount of holes. 

Green Day

πŸ€☘πŸŒ²πŸŒ΅πŸƒπŸŒΏπŸ² It's GREEN DAY! 🍏🍐🐸🐍🐒🐊🌳





Literacy Stations

Station 1: sight words 
Students worked on recognizing the letters in their sight words or spelling their sight words.  



Station 2: computers 
Students work on starfall to enhance their reading skills. 

Station 3: HotDots 
Students use the "magic pens" to answer questions about word families or letters. 


Station 4: sticker story 

Station 5: Letter of the week book
Students work with Mrs Enfinger to read their letter of the week book. 

Station 6: iPads 
Students are working on apps that help them identifying beginning, ending, or middle sounds. 

Station 7: Smart board 
Students use the smart board to match letters, play sight word bingo, or spell words 

Station 8: Listening 


We love when Mrs. LaRocque comes in and joins us!

Pencil Grip / Fine Motor

Pencil grip is so important! Please look at these pictures and make sure your child is using the correct grip. We are working hard on holding a pencil correctly. 
Here are some great pictures and explanations for the correct pencil grip.

Here are some awesome activities to help with fine motor!

Letter O, 5 Senses, Scientist, Numbers 3,4,&5


We had a wild and crazy week of learning! 

We have talked about our 5 senses all week. 


We went on a walk around the building and then came back and drew something we saw. 





We also explored the sense of hearing. We listened to different sounds and then drew what we heard. 


We also explored our sense of touch by walking the building and feeling the different textures. Then we used our sense of smell to guess what we were smelling. 

On Friday we explored our sense of taste on Friday by trying OLIVES !!! It was not only a great way to try something new but it was O week too! We tried black and green olives. Some liked them, some did not but their faces were priceless! 









Then we graphed whether we liked green olives, black lives, or neither. (Believe it or not a few put one for black and green because they liked both!) 




We also had yellow day this week. 


We are scientists!
We read What is a Scientiest? and What is Science? We drew what our favorite science to explore would be and charted what a Scientiest does. 

We got 3 tolls that Scientiest use: safety googles, lab cots, and magnifying glasses. 



Then we visited Mrs Youngs in the STEM lab so she could see our real scientists! 



In Phonics and Teading this week we looked at the formation of lower case letters. Some are tall, some are small, and some fall. 


We chatted our O words. We have to charts because O has two sounds! 


In Math we learned to write and represent the numbers 3,4,&5!







Our tricks are up! Those tricky letters won't trick us! 


We now have 5th grade helpers that come every morning! They are a great help!
