Our letter of the week is F. On Monday we read a couple of funny stories about a fish called THE POUT POUT FISH. We made our own POUT POUT fish practicing our cutting skills.
For math we read another story called The 10 Friendly Fish. This story was great practice for us in counting backwards from 10. After reading it while sitting on our rug, we went back to our seats and read it again- but THIS time everyone had 10 fish crackers on the water (blue paper) and we ATE the fish as we counted backwards while we listened to the story.
We continued our work on the letter F by learning a little about FROGS! We listened to a funny story about frogs and then read an informational book about frogs. The kids really remembered a lot from that book. They are excited to dazzle you with all that they remember. We made a LIFE CYCLE of FROGS to help us remember the stages.
A big frog with a red tongue was the next order of business as we practiced placing a fly on the letter that was written on the board.
And finally, no discussion of frogs would be complete without the good ol' song 5 GREEN AND SPECKLED FROGS. It's great practice in counting backwards too! Google the song and have your child show you how we took a frog away each time and how many are left!
Allie is our Student of the Week this week. Allie has one big brother and lots of cousins that she loves seeing and playing with. Allie wants to be a teacher when she grows up and she does not like broccoli. Allie brought lots of fun pictures to tell us about and she also brought a pink yapping walking dog that was very fuzzy and super cute. She couldn't remember exactly where she got it, but then she thought maybe it was the fair. But not the Lyon County Fair... a BIG fair!! :) She also told us that the dog's name was PINKY!
There were book order flyers in your child's papers on Monday. The due date if you are going to order with the paper flyer order form will be Wednesday, September 21. If you are going to order online, please have that done before noon on Sept. 21. And as always, there is no obligation to order. Just an opportunity to expand that home library. As a reminder, our class code is GRY67 if you are ordering online.
