It was a short week packed with learning! This week we started Read to Self. Read to Self is a designated time we will spend each day reading books on our own in the classroom. We talked about three ways to read a book. We learned we can read the pictures, read the words, and retell the story after we have finished reading it.
We also began our handwriting and math curriculum. The students have been doing an awesome job in both! In math, we are talking about the numbers 0-5. In handwriting, we are working hard to hold our pencil using our thumb, pointer, and middle fingers. We also have been working to form our letters using big and little lines, and big and little curves.
We also began talking about our first habit in Leader in Me. An orange half piece of paper should have come home earlier this week telling you a little more about this. Our first habit is Be Proactive. Be sure to ask your student what this means for them here at school and at home!
