Lysol Healthy Habits Bus

This week was exciting! The Lysol Healthy Habits Bus came to our school on Thursday and the children got to go through different stations on the bus that taught them how to keep germs away and stay healthy!
This week, in reading we worked on taking picture walks and looking at the cover. At home, you can have your child talk about the pictures in the book before you begin reading the book to them. Also, before you read a book with your child, talk about the cover with them.
Each day we have also been learning a different literacy center! Recently, we learned about listening center where students will listen to books on tape!

In writing, we have been working on adding details to our pictures to make our stories better. Some students have also been labeling themselves with "me."
In math, we have been learning different ways to sort. We started with sorting by color and then sorting by shape.
We also did some sorting on the smartboard
This week, we have opened puppet theater, science center and wood center!

Next week is a short week! There won't be school next Thursday and Friday in observance of Rosh Hashanah. Our first homework packet is due this Monday.

Also, I caught a little bit of language through music with Ms. Kim.
