Friday Folder Letter Jan 7, 2011
Reading: Ask what a “Goldilocks Book” is!
Writing: Character Study: Our new genre bin is “bubble books”. Ask us about what they are about!
Word Work: In our ‘tool box’ we reviewed letter sounds, vowels, letter pattern groups, and ‘instant words’.
Math: Patterns on number lines.Greater than/less than/equals
We talked about math terms such as ‘before’ and ‘after’
Social Studies: For Kindertown we discussed poverty and the many possible causes of poverty. We thought about “Rescue Teams” and what kinds of organizations help people.
We raised $85.27 in our Christmas Cafe! We decided on which animal we would fund for a family using Heifer International. Heifer is a rescue team organization that helps with farms and food. We decided to purchase Bees and Trees!
