We have had another fabulous day in Room One! The children entered the class with a lot of energy this morning and we used their energy wisely! The children did a great job participating in a "think, pair, share" about their weekends before writing about them in their journals. One of our goals for today was to write at least one word during journal writing and every child reached that goal! Also, during phonics today, we introduced the vowels in our alphabet reinforcing that every word has a vowel! Finally, we started our "All About Me" books, starting with the page about things we like to do. It was the 20th day of school today! We showed this fact by making a bundle of 10 and counting by 10's to 20. The children recognized that 20 is 2 bundles of 10. During math today, we also continued to practice careful counting and used ten frames to help organize the many different objects that were being counted during an activity called "Inventory Cups". Finally, at Technology, the children continued to learn how to maneuver the mouse. They then went onto Starfall for reinforcement of letter sounds and reading. We can't wait for another wonderful day tomorrow!!
