Ms. Alyssa’s Weekly Update 2.8.18

Happy Thursday! It was so great to meet and talk with all of you at conferences. Getting to talk about your children and how they are doing always brings me so much joy. I left conferences this week with a big smile on my face, so thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to come and chat with me.

This Week:

  • We reviewed the color pink.  “Cotton candy, fat pink pigs, girls with socks and bows, P-I-N-K, P-I-N-K that is how it goes! Bubble gum, valentines, these are all pink too. Pink icing and pink balloons, we can spell, can you? ” Click on this link to hear the song.

  • We learned about hexagons and octagons. The students enjoyed looking for these around the room and on the playground. They noticed we have octagon steps on the playground and thought that was really cool.

  • We discussed the number 10 and practiced recognizing it, writing it and counting it. We started talking about how as we count higher the numbers are two numerals we already know how to write combined.

  • We practiced recognizing, writing and producing the sounds for the letters Xx, Yy and Zz. We finished the alphabet for the second time! How crazy! We will continue to send the animal pals home the third time through the alphabet. We will also start focusing on sight words more.

  • We focused on water transportation this week. We talked about sinking, floating and buoyancy. We also watched a video of a boat picking up trash in the ocean and discussed how we can keep our planet clean. Lastly, we had a special guest, pilot, Captain Karl, come and talk to our class about what it is like to fly a plane.
