Love of Reading!


We started the week by celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday!  We read the Cat in the Hat, and (of course!) made our own hats! We kept the week going by reading Green Eggs & Ham next, and doing some opinion writing on food we don’t like and why.  We also watched Horton Hears a Who, and did a “hero” writing piece.  We also read Yertle the Turtle, did some comprehension and a writing piece on being King or Queen of the classroom! We wrapped up the week by reading the Sneetches, and wrote about the lesson they learned.

Along the way, we got a chance to go to the Book Fair…

and listen to a presentation from wonderful author, Jennifer Stewart!  It was a great week for reading, and having fun!

In math, we are working on regrouping.  We started with addition, and are thrilled at how quickly the kids are catching on! 🙂 We will shift gears and try subtracting next week.  Be prepared for a little bit of growing pains as we learn.  We will keep practicing, practicing, and practicing with both addition and subtraction through the end of the year!

Next week, we will spend Monday and Tuesday wrapping up our study of Dr. Seuss with Oh the places you’ll go, and a biography flip book of Dr. Seuss.  Then we’ll shift gears to rainbows and colors as we prepare for St. Patrick’s Day!
