We’ve had great fun yelling about the letter Yy! We began our study by making yo yo’s on our lettercard, making a list of words that start with the letter Yy, and handwriting Yy using yellow crayons! We enjoyed yogurt as a special snack and played with yo yo’s!  As always, we look forward to seeing what Maggie decides to eat and generating our own words beginning with Yy!

Coins will serve as our math unit for the next couple of weeks, and we have introduced the penny, nickel, dime, and quarter. Pennies, Nickels, Dimes, and Quarters books by Mary Hill have taught us all about how to recognize the different coins we see. We are recording what we learn about each coin and making connections! We made our own paper versions of the coins to bring home to help us review. 

We are looking forward to lots of fun next week as we celebrate our 100th day of school on Tuesday. Thank you to the parents that have volunteered to help us with our activities!

Welcome back! We have missed all of these smiling faces and have loved hearing about everyone’s break! We have begun January by diving into our season of winter! We watched a BrainPop, Jr. and learned about how the Earth orbits the sun, and it tilts away during winter, making it feel cold outside! We talked about what temperature is and what a thermometer does.  We started talking about what animals do in the winter and discussed what migrate, hibernate, and adapt means.  We also journaled what our favorite thing to do in the winter is.

Our week was off to an exciting start with the introduction of the letter, Vv, and our vase letter card!   We completed a game on our iPads in which we sorted Vv and Ff pictures. We practiced handwriting V’s using a violet crayon.

We have begun our study of graphing this week, and we have graphed a lot of information and learned a lot about our friends! Who knew graphs could tell us so much? 

Looking ahead to next week, we will begin our study of the letter Ww. In math, we will focus on identifying and creating 3-part patterns by color, size, and kind. We will continue our study of winter and begin to learn how other animals cope with cold temperatures!
