Feelings and Story Re-tell
spring-creek-academy-kids-volunteer.jpg

Our first full week is finished! They made it five full days in a row and no one fell asleep during quiet time.  I am sure your child is going home VERY tired.  Watching them in the afternoon on Friday, I could tell there were several tired kids.  They worked very hard this week on many different activities.  We started the week learning about the five senses.  They each made a head and labeled where each sense goes on their picture.  On Tuesday, we listened to  If You Give a Mouse a Cookie they then drew their favorite part of the story.  On Wednesday, they listened to Rosie's Walk and made their own Rosie's Walk re-tell book.  I hope your child was able to come home and re-tell the story to you.  On Thursday, we did our first Story Map using Rosie's Walk.  We will be doing Story Map's all year.  They are learning that fictional stories have a beginning, middle, and end.  Plus, talking about characters and setting.  On Friday, we talked about feeling words.  They listened to the story The Way I Feel and drew their own faces using feeling words.  In math, we have been working on a numbers book writing our numbers, number words, and finding numbers in a group of numbers.  
This week we will stary busy learning about feelings on Monday.  Starting Tuesday and Wednesday, we will listen to the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff  and then make a neck theater, which your child can explain to you on Tuesday.  They will be focusing on re-telling the story using characters and the setting.  On Thursday, they will hear the story The Three Betty Goats Griff, which is written by a woman who has grandchildren at Kenny.  We will then learn about a Venn Diagram and compare the two Goat stories.  On Friday, we will listen to Little Red Riding Hood and do a sequencing activity by coloring and gluing them on a sheet of paper.  We are still working on our letters and reading the shoebox books daily.  I am hoping your child is going home to read his/her shoebox books to you.  In math, we are starting patterns this week, which is the first unit in the math curriculum.  We start with very basic patterns.  

LIBRARY IS ON THURSDAY, PLEASE HAVE YOUR CHILD BRING HIS/HER LIBRARY BOOK BACK EVERY WEEK!

Behavior sheets will go home daily, so make sure you sign them and return them the next day!  Some students have earned a certificate and do not have to have a beahvior sheet anymore because they earned so many smiley faces.
