During our morning work time, the children completed an ‘on’ sight word worksheet and book.

During our Morning Meeting, we continued to work on letter ‘Q,’ and the children are doing a great job blending word parts together to make a word. We read and discussed the book “Scarecrow, Scarecrow, How Scary Can You Be?” We completed a sight word poetry chart together for the word ‘on.’

Learning Centers:
Small group with me: The children completed their own ‘Scarecrow’ book, and we stretched out words together so that they could write the CVC words that went in their book. All of the children did a wonderful job!

Literacy: The children worked on finding picture words that start with ‘Q’ to paste on a quilt.

Math: The children played a scarecrow/crow game and rolled dice to put crows in the barn or on the scarecrow. They compared the numbers with their partner.

Literacy: The children completed their own sight word poetry page, and they played a letter ‘Q’ quilt matching game.

Literacy/Craft: The children made their own scarecrow to go with their book.

This afternoon, we watched a puppet interview Mo Willems. We read his book “There’s A Bird On Your Head,” and we discussed it together. We completed a chart with all of the facts about him that we have learned over our study.

Daily News: “Is it on the desk?”

During our morning work time, the children worked on matching uppercase and lowercase letters.

During our Morning Meeting, we focused on stretching out words to distinguish between words that have common spelling. We completed our ‘Pumpkin Investigation’ by estimating the weight and weighing our pumpkin and seeing if it sinks or floats in water. We discussed the results, and the children completed their own investigation sheet. We worked on letter ‘Q,’ reviewed the sign language for letters A-Q, and the children practiced writing the letter ‘Q.’ We read and discussed the book ‘Quick As A Cricket.’ We sounded out and worked with the sight word ‘on.’

This afternoon, we worked on blending word parts together. I said the two different parts of a word together, and they ‘clapped’ them together. The children worked really hard and did a wonderful job with this new concept! We also read and discussed two more books by Mo Willems. We will complete our Author Study about him tomorrow by reading some of their favorite books by him and listed everything they learned about him and his work.

Today we introduced the letter Q.  We also worked on the sight word, on.

Please have your field trip permission slips and money in ASAP.  If we do not have them on Wednesday, your child will not be able to attend.

All book orders have now been submitted.  Books should arrive in the next 10 days.  Thank you for your participation.

During our morning work time, the children worked on a ‘with’ sight word worksheet and book.

During our Morning Meeting, we focused on the difference between the letter sounds ‘O’ and ‘P,’ and we started our “Pumpkin Investigation!” The children guessed the following about our pumpkin: The amount of cubes that would measure its height and the amount of seeds inside. We watched “Spookley the Square Pumpkin,” and we discussed it together. We completed a sight word poetry chart for the word ‘with’ together.

Learning Centers:
Small group with me: The children made their own patterns with Froot Loops, wrote about it, and labeled the type of pattern.

Literacy: The children found picture words that start with ‘P.’

Math: The children put pumpkins in numerical order from 1-10.

Math: The children dug in pumpkins, grouped the seeds by 10, and they circled and wrote a 10 for each group.

Literacy: The children made their own sight word page and Pirate puppet.

This afternoon, we counted by 10′s for most of the seeds to find that we had 292 total! The children had so much fun today as they learned together! We will complete our “Pumpkin Investigation” on Monday by weighing the pumpkin and seeing if it sinks or floats in water!

Please make sure that you send in your child’s Field Trip permission slip and money on Monday so that we can tell Smith Family Farm how many children will be going on our trip! Have a wonderful weekend!IMG_7995
