Mrs. Gerber's group worked on putting feathers in the right order to make our NAME on a turkey
For math, we played a little game called ROLL AND COVER. We have played this game before and will play it again. Subitizing (being able to see small groups of objects and not have to count them) is an important skill to have and this is a fun way to practice that skill.
We found out on Monday that WE WON THE PIZZA PARTY! Luckily for us, we only had to wait until WEDNESDAY TO ENJOY IT! Along with winning the pizza party, we were able to get some amazing books from the Book Fair! We got a few 3D books, a couple of dinosaur books, a couple of shark books (including a ginormous shark encyclopedia) 2 pet books, a newly released Thanksgiving book and a dinosaur model that we will make on one of our FRIDAY SCIENCE DAYS!
Thank you so much for sending in your extra change (and bills!:) ) to help us earn such amazing books and of course, the pizza party! WOOP WOOP FOR US!
Wednesday we learned about NOCTURNAL ANIMALS! We already knew that bats were nocturnal, but we added to our base finding out (sometimes by checking with google) what animals were nocturnal or not. I found an activity with animals on a teacher website, so I downloaded it and VOILA! We had nocturnal and diurnal animals to sort!
We got a small little paper book to read and bring home (The book is not really predictable, except for the pictures- which I'm pretty sure your child will point out that we noticed there is a mistake in the daytime picture. I'm sure they will want to show it to you themselves, so I will leave it to them to tell you! :)
We did a patterning page with Chester during math time. These were ABAB patterns and pretty basic for the smartie TK kids that we are at this point, but we did it anyway with gusto!
Ella found a butterfly outside of her house on the ground. She picked it up and brought it with her on the bus to show us all. To ALL of our surprise (except to Ella) the butterfly was ALIVE! We put it in our butterfly house and it fluttered around a bit. We identified that he was a boy and so since Ella found him, she got to name him. She named him DAD. :) We took DAD out to the football field but not to the trees. Just away from the school far enough that he wouldn't have to deal with kids bothering him. We put him on the fence, all walked past him and said "BYE, DADDY!" and we left him to fly to Mexico. Thank you, Ella for finding DAD and sharing him with us!
THE REALLY BIG NEWS ON WEDNESDAY WAS OUR PIZZA PARTY! It was so exciting and so hard to wait, but definitely WORTH THE WAIT once it finally arrived! The kids also had the option of having some orange pop, another milk or water with their pizza to wash it down.
