Literacy News
Students continue to apply learned reading strategies as they read independently, with a partner, and during guided and shared reading times. Students are self-correcting as they read. They understand the words and the pictures should match and the beginning letter sound of the printed text should match too. Super readers make the words and the pictures match! If they don't look or sound right- try again. Students learned and recited the nursery rhyme hey diddle diddle, identifying rhyming pairs and developing strong fluency skills. Turkey in disguise projects are due on Thursday, November 17th. When we read this book together we made predictions and sequenced the many disguises the turkey wore through oral storytelling. This book was read in class more than once. We discussed the importance of rereading and pointed out images, words, and ideas that rereading gave us the ability to see. This was a valuable point in understanding that rereading allows for the opportunity to see things and make connections from a different perspective. 
 
BOOK TITLES WE'VE READ:
  • The Fox in the Library by Lorenz Pauli
  • In November by Cynthia Rylant
  • Another by Christian Robinson
  • The Very Stuffed Turkey by Katherine Kenah
  • Ten Black Dots by Donald Crews
Math News
Students continue learning and practicing number formation. Students have begun to fill in blank hundred charts building fluency with numbers up to 100, rote counting, number sense, placement of numbers in sequential order, and reading numbers left to right in a row. Students were introduced to the concept of how many more, comparing numbers using one-to-one correspondence. e.g., five friends at the party and only three chairs, how many more chairs are needed for every friend at the party to have a chair? Colored manipulatives were used to show the differentiation of how many more. Application of the concept included problem-solving in our math workbook and the use of manipulatives in small groups. Instruction about how many fewer/less was also introduced.
