Our class introduced many new routines this week and we are getting closer to operating as a full day with all content areas. We introduced the following:
- Math Instruction introducing our topic on Geometry. This week, it was on 2-dimensional shapes. We are expected to learn the circle, square, rectangle, triangle and hexagon. We had a variety of opportunities to identify, create, and name these shapes. We are working on our first iBook that should be uploaded next week! If you have a tablet, or iPhone, you should be able to read this book at home!
- Handwriting: Students introduced how we form letters the "school way". We stroke from the top to the bottom and worked on the letters l and i. We introduced the white boards and dry erase markers and the structure that is in place in order for us to maximize our learning time!
- We had another fire drill... we did great!
- We introduced our Poetry Folder and read the three poems that we have worked on from the past two weeks.
