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.

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 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.
Station 1: sight words
Students use the "magic pens" to answer questions about word families or letters.
Station 4: sticker story

Here are some great pictures and explanations for the correct pencil grip.
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 awesome activities to help with fine motor!
We have talked about our 5 senses all week.
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.
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 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!
