A short and sweet week

Hello families,

Last week was a nice way to return together after vacation.  I hope you enjoyed yours!  Clara and I both caught this stomach bug that is going around, and I hope to be back to 100% soon.  Here is a little glimpse into last week.

Enjoy, Jennifer

Math:
The kids eased back into school by creating their own equation illustrations.  I hope you can find a chance to check these out in person.  They are very sweet.  This stimulated a great discussion, which I will be sharing in a reflection page, soon.  This work will also help us lead into story problems in a genuine and fun way!











Science: 
The class was transformed to include learning about animals in many of the stations.  The kids are very interested!  For one of our Game Day activities, we used a bird bingo to practice reading and learning the various names of birds from around the world.



Language Arts-
Something you can try at home- we used pieces and parts of other games to create a new activity for our morning meeting.  This was helpful to practice sight words- for both recognition and for spelling them from memory.  We used cards, a spinner and dice with letters on them to create the challenges that the kids took turns doing.  What games from games will you create at home?





Working At Open Choice- Lots of options
I hope your child can share a bit about these!
