In social studies we have been learning about being a good person. We must respect each other. We made friendly fingers with some positive sentences.
The children also expressed what they’re an expert in. We’re all experts and we all need help with something. This is a way we can learn to help each other.
Over the weeks we have been focusing on how to read. I’ve taught the students the 3 ways to read. Read the pictures. Read the words. Retell the story.
The students have been split into two groups. One group focuses on reading and the other writing.
Today I had the students silent read for some time, then read to each other.
With writing, the important thing is trying to write and sound out the words. I tell the students say the word and write it the way you hear it. To get them started I had them make a picture and write. Remember, drawing is part of the writing process.
This week we’ve been learning to count using tally marks. The students conducted surveys asking each other which item they liked. If the student who was asked liked the item, the student who asked the question marked a tally.
We also had a tally race. I played a song and the children raced to mark tally’s. The team with the most tally’s won!
The children are in their way to counting like pros!
