We welcomed October with a beautiful fall day and increased independence. We reflected on our last month together and came up with some of our favorite things we've done so far:
1. Math- ST Math, Quick Math, Trays/Games, Expanded Form, Word Form, etc. (the kids went on about math)
2. Class Cheers
3. Small Moment writing and making our characters come alive (characters say things, think things and feel things)
4. READING! To Self, With Someone and Raz-Kids
5. Spelling numbers
6. Reading Marty McGuire
7. P.E., art, music, library
9. Reading Buddies
10. MAP testing
Each morning I tell a hilarious joke to the class. Before I tell them the punchline, I have them try to guess the answer. I feel this opportunity allows the kids to think about possible play on words and puns. It's a fun way to see kids take risks and think a little outside the box. Here's a few jokes we've shared over the weeks. I'm not including all the punchlines, hopefully your child remembers them and doesn't keep you in suspense!
What do you call a pig that knows karate?
Why do cows wear bells?
What did the zero say to the eight?
How do you make 7 even?
Where do library books like to sleep?
