It was a Busy Week

This week we practiced our retelling in class each day.  The kids love when we get to use the big puppets!  

In science we have been learning about tools that scientists use.  The kids loved using the balance to weigh and compare different classroom items. 

If you didn't make it to Open House then find a few minutes this week to drop by and see our Standards Based Bulletin Board outside our classroom.  It will give you a glimpse into our busy skills block.

Star Books

Over the last couple weeks we have been reading our Star Books such as Caps for Sale and The 3 Billy Goats Goats.  Students  practice retelling the stories with partners, acting it out, pictures, and puppets.  These activities will help them with the pre-reading skills needed to become a good reader.
