Today was our first lockdown and the students did a super job of staying quiet and out of view of our windows. Even when the constable and Mrs. Sherwood came and tried to get into our classroom no one moved. Our constable said that they walked by our classroom a couple of times and he had no idea that anyone was in the room. Yeahhh!!!
Students have their time/calendar test in their backpack for you to look over. I would suggest that you look at the areas that your child had challenges with and ask those types of questions from day to day. Calendar did seem to be tricky especially distinguishing between the day and the date. We have moved on to patterning. Today we looked at color patterns and identified the "core". Ask your child to make a color pattern that repeats 3 times. Ask them to identify the core (the part that repeats).
This morning the class practice how to handwrite the letters Cc and Dd. There are some beautiful handwriters in this class.
In Science the students started making a model of the ear using play dough.
There is a fun lunch tomorrow. Please send a snack for the morning and afternoon if you have ordered a lunch.
Book Orders due tomorrow
No school on Friday (PD day) and Monday (Thanksgiving Day)
