Things picked up in math this week, with more games and activities surrounding the number 10. For some, this meant counting within 10 and writing the number; for others, this meant creating different addition sentences and showing 10 in as many ways as they could. In reading, we finished unit 2 and moved onto unit 3, where we will spend more concentrated time on letter sounds and sight words to create simple sentences for some, and more complicated sentences for others.
The kids really enjoyed learning about American symbols this week, and loved writing about what they would do if they were president. Where would they live? How would they ride around? In their carriage, helicopter or on a unicorn named Twilight Sparkles? My favorite question and comment the students made about being president of the United States was, "Why haven't we had a woman president? I wanna be president someday and I'm a girl!" We have some strong, independent thinkers in our class, that's for sure! Our future is in good hands!
