This week we learned a lot of new routines! SO far we've learned:
Read to Self
Work on Writing
Gathering Space Expectations (large group)
Singing Bowl (what to do when bell rings)
Bathroom and Drink
The student's favorite routine happens during dismissal. After they line up...
We play a game or two. One is called, "I'm Thinking of Someone" when I give hints about a person I'm thinking of (the first three hints are in line, quiet, and facing forward) and eventually we end with a student who followed the line expectations the entire time.
If we have less than a minute before dismissal, we play "The Rock Game" where the students try to be the best rock. Believe it or not this is their favorite! It's a nice quiet end to our day to get us prepared for the bus/walking/Champions/pick up.
Beyond the games and procedures, we've learned a lot about plants. This includes the parts, what a plant needs to survive, and the life cycle.
In math we studied the partners of 5 as well as counting as 5 and some more. This serves as a building block to working with 10s. We were introduced to the 10 stick as well. Your child should know what that is!
All in all it has been a busy week and we learned a lot!
