“Growing Innovators Who Will Change The World”
We have discussed “bad habits” that some readers develop and how important it is that we “drop the bad habits and pick up good ones”. Ask your child if they remember some of them!
In math, we enjoyed the story Corduroy by Don Freeman and worked on a “button” problem. We then spent the rest of the week visiting different stations (13 in all) to count and record various items. We used efficient strategies to help with counting such as piles of 5 or 10. We then made a class graph using the data we collected.
We learned about Veterans Day and wrote a letter of thanks for the Veterans living at the Bennington Veterans Home.
We had Four Winds and learned all about stags and rotting logs. Please see attached information.
Also attached is our November Chicken Soup Poem for some home practice!
Keep on reading and recording on your Reading Log :)
