We worked together to make shapes using large pieces of yarn. To successfully make each shape, groups had to think about how many sides and how many corners the shape had. For trickier shapes, they also had to consider diagonal or straight lines, equal length sides, and curves!
We compared objects to a marker to decide if they were longer or shorter. We discovered that most objects were shorter than the marker. Then we compared the same set of objects to a paper clip. This time, more objects were longer!
We were very excited to use our new book bags! Each week, we make a book or two for our bags and add a poem to our poetry folder. We add one to three new sight words to our sight word rings each week and keep those in the bag. Expect to see these bags every weekend!
As part of our writing block, we learned and practiced how to make different kinds of lines and curves. This will help us with both drawing and letter formation. We took those lines and curves and learned new ways to draw people, houses, and animals. We also used lines and curves in the art center to draw and paint. You can draw anything if you know lines and curves!
We have a new place to read in the classroom – our tent! We can also sit outside and pretend to roast marshmallows and hot dogs, or just enjoy the fake fire.
