Wowzer! Where did April go??
With each update I find myself saying... holy cow where did the time go?
The kids are turning into readers before my very eyes and I am so impressed with them each day. On top of reading books in small groups, they are choosing "bonus books" to practice and read to me each week. We have also added "CVC Practice" to our day where the students can choose any of the CVC activities (games, writing on plastic sleeves, CVC egg activities, and more!) They are really doing well practicing sounding out new words and being brave readers. Speaking of being brave...
In our class we talk about being brave writers a lot. The students are being pushed to write multiple sentences when they are doing their writing now. Some words are quite tricky that they want to include and they are expected to sound each word out the best they can on their own! They have sight/common words on the back of their chairs and our word wall as resources, but the rest is pure brain power! I see them using the lines and including spaces between words more and more and am so proud!
In math we have been learning about measuring length, height, weight, and capacity. We are also revisiting writing our numbers 0-20 and trying to stop those pesky numbers that get written backwards a lot! The students are catching on very quickly and seem to really enjoy comparing and measuring.
