On our week of Remembrance we will be discussing how we can be peace-makers to make our world a better place. We are so fortunate to live in a beautiful, free country. We appreciate and respect Canada’s peace-keepers. On November 11th WE WILL REMEMBER.
What we are learning:
Literacy - This week we will learn our next 5 new words in list 2 (look, is, her, there, some) and our new phrases (look at her, there is) Our reading strategy for the month of November will be to look at the beginning sound of an unknown word and get our mouth ready to say that sound . We will also be working on identifying the sounds of “Bossy R” (ar, or, ir, er, ur, )
Math - We will continue to work on counting in a variety of ways forward and backward from a given number to 20, counting by 2’s and continuing to explore the wonderful teen numbers. We have also been working on building numbers on the tens frame to help us understand one more, one less, two more, two less than a given number. These skills are worked on daily.
You and Your World - We will continue to discuss the importance of being kind and peaceful citizens in our communities, school and neighborhood.
