This week in reading, we studied Eric Carle. Here are some of the few books that he has written.
Our sight words this week were "has" and "have". We focused on compound words. We combined the artistry of Eric Carle with a compound word art project.
In science, we learned about objects in the sky. We brainstormed a list of items we knew were in the sky.
Then we drew what was in the day and night sky in our science journals.
We learned about the sun and painted the sun.
We learned about the moon and wrote about the moon in our science journal.
We learned about clouds and drew a picture of a cloud based on the book, It Looked Like Spilt Milk.
We learned about the stars and make star water bottles. We learned it is impossible to count all of the stars in the sky, just like we cannot count the stars in our water bottles.
In math, we continued to work on the numbers in the teens. We made a human number line by putting the numbers in order. We are practicing what number comes before and after a given number.
We practiced adding and decomposing numbers using the tens frame. We also used a new math manipulative to problem solve called the Rekenrek or math rack.
We got to go to the innovation station again this week. I remembered my camera this time. Here is some of the fun we had there.
We also celebrated Audrey's birthday!
