In math this week, we are having so much fun with place value Yahtzee. We are starting with 3 dice, and will continue over the next several weeks with 4 and even 5. We are also doing great work in our Singapore math books. Whole group lessons have included work in subtraction of higher numbers with renaming - always a tricky pickle.
We made such pretty thank you cards to our two very special master gardeners at the Friday Morning Meeting - I kind of hated to give them away! Special readers Miles and Nels did a fantastic job this week, and all of the children are continuing to make sweet illustrations in their poetry anthologies. Spelling and handwriting are coming along as well.
Valerie took some gorgeous close-up photos of the children this week as inspiration for a poetry project as part of our larger identity theme. We did some brainstorming of all of our body parts and why we love them.
On Friday, we made mini-pumpkin breads for your Thanksgiving table. They will be ready for you to take home next week. This was another opportunity for our class to combine with Grace’s at the end of the week - the children are really look forward to this with great anticipation, as do we two.
