What we did this week!
We continued counting by 2s this week. We worked on some worksheets to develop this skill. We learned that counting by 2s makes counting faster!We referred to our caterpillar when we got lost!It was a bit bricky bit we will keep exploring this area.
Our friends showed us several ways on how we can sort out things. We sorted them by color, shape, size and identity.
For literacy we worked on the lower case letters and later on we matched them with the upper case letters. We also worked on strengthening our fine motor skills by tracing the letters on the worksheet. We brought home some of our works to share with our family.
We began our geography introduction this week! This students were engaged with each other and asked questions like where their friends were. Here are a few points we covered:
Geography is the study of the physical and populated earth
What elements make the earth
Where we are from
Terms such as map and globe
We are counting the days until the grand opening of our bookstore! When we first sat down to plan, we asked if it was possible to have a triangle shape shelf and here it is with our books displaced on it! The excitement on the kid’s faces was priceless when they saw it! Thank you all who worked to make this happen!
Next week plans!
