Students sampled raw pumpkin (almost everyone) and compared pumpkins and apples. Ask your child to tell you about the things that they both have. Next week we will continue to work with pumpkins and if anyone would like to send in a pumpkin (of any size) we will use them for measuring and Math games.
We have been enjoying some yoga thanks to Emily Williams and really appreciate all the parent/grandparent help in class with centers and reading.
Many students are struggling with our "hear words" in the little books we read so please practice them with your child. Flash cards, building words, writing with chalk, signing, writing with shaving cream, foam letters in the bath, play-dough, are all fun ways to practice these words and help with reading fluency.
