 *   We started our unit on “Number 1-5,” and learned to write the numbers 1, 2, and 3, next week we will work on 4 and 5.  Our Math activities this week have been counting rhymes and songs “1 Potato 2 Potato” and “5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.”

 *   For Art this week we learned about filling the entire space when coloring while we made a scarecrow that tells about us.

Continue the learning at home

    Story Retell – “The Star Coins”

     A little girl named Anna was so poor she had no home.  She wandered around the country looking for a place to live with only the clothes on her back and a loaf of bread.  She met an old man who said he was hungry and asked for some of her bread.  So she shared her bread with him.  She then met a little boy whose bare feet where cold and Anna gave him the shoes off her feet.  Last she met a young girl who was very cold and Anna gave away her coat.  Anna heard a rumbling and looked up to see the stars falling from the sky.  As they fell they turned into silver coins which covered the ground.  And she had all the money she needed for a place to live, to buy food and to help others.

Coming up next week

 *   We will be having Zz, Cc, Oo, Qq, and Gg as our letters of the day.

 *   We will be finishing up our pre-assessments, I will have information to share with parents at conferences.
