Happy November!

Calendar: Today’s calendar was led by Eric. Great job Eric!

Phonics: Today students reviewed the “G/g” sound, actions, and songs. Students were also introduced to the “O/o” sound, actions, and songs. Students watched a video called “Geraldine learns the /o/ sound” and brainstormed words that contain this sound.

Lunch/ Recess 1

Math: Students reviewed the pattern terminology that we have been using such as the pattern core, attributes, and how to name patterns using letters. Today, students practiced filling in part of a pattern that is missing, as well as determining what comes next in a pattern. Students completed an activity in Math Makes Sense to practice filling in gaps in patterns.

Unit of Inquiry: Today, students discussed the sense of touch including objects that are hot or cold. Students completed a cut-and-paste activity by sorting what objects are safe to touch, and which objects we do not touch. Some examples of things we do not touch included a stove/oven, a campfire, or a box of matches. Some of the things we do touch included a pair of flip flops, a baseball, and an ice cream cone.
