- This month we will continue to study Nursery Rhymes. In class, we are reciting and learning new vocabulary words as we introduce new and old nursery rhymes. Our discussions allow children the opportunity to share their thinking about the nursery rhymes as well as identify characters and sequence the events in each rhyme. We are doing many activities that focus on rhyming words, patterns and pairs. Rhyming is a very important skill for young readers!!
- Draw a picture illustrating the nursery rhyme
- Make a puppet of the character/characters in the nursery
- Create your own nursery rhyme
- Create a book of rhyming pairs
During the month of October, we are learning how to decompose numbers 1-5. We will also be focusing on analyzing objects that are different and similar. We are also focusing on counting objects in scattered configurations.
