In literacy, we have been reviewing ALL our jolly phonics sounds, doing new centers, and writing a ton! On Wednesday, we had Young Author's Day at Indian Trail. Toma the mime came and challenged all the classes to write our own story for him to act out in the afternoon assembly. Our class wrote a story about driving in the car, getting in an accident, and having to call the police. We loved seeing the stories the other class wrote and having Toma act out. He was hilarious.
Our new centers include Raz kids, a reading app, read to self, spelling magnetic sight words, blending puzzles (and writing the words), and practicing our addition facts by matching them on eggs. We also started preparing for our upcoming weather unit/exploration by talking about all the weather words we know!
We have continued our "afternoon tub" play time and it has really evolved into something awesome. The students collaborate and play together, and often choose to write or read together during this time which is so sweet!
