Sharing: This week the Winnie-the-Poohs and Eeyores will share.
This week we will be meeting Ms. P and her pointy patches. We will practice writing the letter. The lower case /p/ is tricky because it dips below the line. We will practice the sound of the letter and think of words that begin with the sound. We are also continuing our Benchmark Unit 6 study of animals. We are making an animal book by cutting shapes to create animals, a task that requires following directions, cutting skills and a bit of artistic talent too. The children are having a good time creating their paper animals and we are writing a sentence on each page.
Our math skills are addressed in both our math journal and our Benchmark workbook. We continue to practice patters, shapes, addition, and counting.
Superheros: We have been learning to be superheros. This is another way to reinforce our Conscious Discipline program-using our "big voice." We take the Superhero stance and speak up if someone is doing something we don't like. We are learning "No means no." and "Yes means yes." This is empowering our young students and discouraging bully type behavior, or simply unwanted behavior. Ask your children to show you how they can speak up for themselves to feel safe. Here is a great link to watch a TED talk about how your body language may shape who you are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ks-_Mh1QhMc
