Today students were introduced to our first set of Word Wall Words. They will learn 5 new words each week. Throughout the week we will be practicing them in class through a variety of activities including: reading them in our weekly poem, chanting them, writing them, and doing our word work centers with them. I encourage you to practice them at home too.
We try to do our BUILD Math centers each day. Activities in our bins change throughout the year to reflect what our Math focus is. The bins always follow the same format:
U: Using Manipulatives
I: Independent Work
L: Learning Focus (small group working with the teacher)
Students will rotate throughout the week so they are getting to each bin at least once.
Today students were introduced to Raz-Kids, which is a reading app that gives students access to hundreds of books online! They are able to listen to books, read them independently and record their reading. Once they begin their Snuggle Books, at home reading program, this is a great way to access books thatareat a "just right" level for your child.
