What's happening this week .... October 3rd - 7th
During the month of October students will be asked to share something that they are thankful for. They can bring in pictures, illustrations or props to support their presentation if they would like.
This week we will be finishing up our sorting and patterning unit in math. Students are becoming so good at identifying a pattern core, extending the pattern and labelling it with letters we have moved on to pattern cores with four and five parts, eg. ABACC Impressive work grade one! Later this week we will be recording some action and sound patterns.
During our literacy block this week we will work on extending our independent reading time and adding a new component called ``Read to Someone`` We have also added the laptops to this portion of our day and had some grade six students come and teach us how to log on to the laptops. Our Raz Kids online reading program is up and running and students are excited to start using the program.
We have some fun Thanksgiving songs to learn and will add them to our poetry books.
This week we will be reviewing the short vowel i during the word study portion of our literacy block.
We have a busy week ahead as we prepare to finish up some of our units before our first long weekend.
Enjoy a good week!
