Today we will be meeting to discuss the goals your children and I have set for this semester. Setting goals is an important part of our school culture. Setting goals helps us blossom.
This week we worked with the letter sounds (b) an (ai). Most of the students still have trouble telling b and d apart. You can help them by having them practice making b and d at home. Baking bread is always fun...make a b shaped bun. Of course, you can bathe the dog. Here is Bellisima, my dog, getting a bath this week.
We worked with the -all family of words, all, ball, call, tall, fall, wall and mall.
We worked with rhyming words and continued our weather until.
To help us understand the upcoming holiday, Columbus Day, we did a water color of the ocean to retell the story of Columbus coming across the Atlantic Ocean in the three ships from Spain, the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. We learned that sometimes people who make important contributions to the world also cause harm to others.
We had a Tuesday tea party with hats in honor of Mercy Watson, who had a tea party with Stella and Frank in book 5. Unlike Mercy, we got to drink real tea and eat real tea cakes (batty cakes that we baked that morning). We drank tea in the china cups that belonged to Alessandra's great great grandmother. Nothing got broken!
Finally, I have some shots of the reptile show. It was outstanding!
