9/17/17-We had a great first full week and the kids were definitely tired by the end. In math we are working on counting strategies and numeral formation and exploring the many different manipulatives will be using this year. We have read Anno's Counting Book, and are making our own counting books. We have read 10 Black Dots and are making dot pictures. In ELA we are reading poems and nursery rhymes including Baa Baa Black Sheep, The Incy Wincy Spider, and Jack and Jill. We are learning step by step drawing and making mistakes is ok! In Open Circle we have talked about what makes us alike and different and in Responsive Classroom we have established our classroom rules.
I am gearing up to go back to Claypit soon to turn a pile of furniture and boxes into a warm and welcoming classroom. I am excited for you to see it!
