Exciting Thursday

We had a very exciting Thursday here at school! Today was the grand opening of the ArboREADum!! The children sat outside the doors for the ribbon cutting!! We are so excited to get to use this wonderful part of our school! The ArboREADum used to be the atrium but has been totally transformed into an awesome space for our students! Because of our Thursday schedule we did not get to take a tour of the ArboREADum, but we will go through it tomorrow and our first time to use it for a subject lesson will be next week!! Yay!

During reading centers we practiced sentence building with the words I am and our name! We are learning the difference between a letter/ word/ sentence! In phonics we counted the words in several sentences and even had student volunteers stand up with different words so we could add/ delete some words to show that we need all parts of the sentence for it to make sense. We also sorted letters on the iPads! This helps us with capital and lowercase letter identification!

In math we identified numerals, number words, tally marks, dice, dominoes, and ten frames for the numbers 0-5! I know that sounds like a lot, but the students enjoyed learning different ways to represent numbers! We will continue to learn about this over the next several weeks!
