Nov 5 - 9
Slightly shorter week with an election day snuck in there but worked hard and finished our ark artwork. How cool are our watercolor rainbows? We know it showed Noah that God keeps his promises, how special. The letter Ff brought out the water table thinking of arks or other things that might sink or float. We added the concept of community helpers to our BigDay theme and enjoyed identifying them with a big book with Mrs. Walker's class and a rhyming story with Mrs. Falconio's class. Library tied into this idea with Firefighters A-Z along with the letter F, how fun. We played a frog hop game,played with feathers and sang and acted out the F song. We also created a special gift for our grandparents/special friends, shhh it's a secret. Gym had us moving by freeze dancing, it gets the heart pumping for sure!
Oct 29 - Nov 2
Chapel brought us the story of Noah so we started some art to recall that promising story. We began syllable work, clapping out how many sounds you hear in a community location word such as hos-pit-al (3), try it at home. We identified places we go in our community and wrote about our errands. This tied into our letter Ee which didn't generate a lot of words but I think we got the idea that it's a special letter with two sounds short and long. With Halloween in the middle of the week, we had our costume parade, Mr. Don told us a great story with our names and costumes in it and we enjoyed our library story titled Believe it or not My Brother Has A Monster! The nice weather let us have gym outside as we ran relay races stuffing a pumpkin with candy and doing silly Halloween motions. Finally, we said goodbye to October
