Learning All About Our Names!

This was our first full week of school. We focused a lot on procedures, listening skills, and following directions. We began our reading and our math and are off and running! This week we practiced 3 letters: Tt, Ff, Bb. I teach three letters a week so that we can compare them and use them on a daily basis.

We also learned about the special letter that is the first letter of our names. Here is our fun craft we made:
We used my special "jewels" to make our names really sparkle.

We started our math curriculum this week by working on the number 1, the shapes square and circle, and how to match and sort. One of our activities was to sort our buttons by shape.

We also sorted our shoes! Everyone took off their shoes and threw them into a pile. Then we had to sort them and match them so that they could get to the right owner.

iRead began this week! iRead is a fun program that allows your child to work on their reading at their own, individual level. Students work on letters, sight words and phonemic awareness skills at a pace that works for them. And, at the end of every level, they get to change their avatar, which is a super cute monster designed by them.
Here is a picture of me, drawn by Annabelle. It looks just like me!
