This week...

September 28-October 2:
We are practicing our DIBELS skills of letter naming and initial sounds daily.  We also will focus on classifying and categorizing through our story of the week.  In math we are continuing to work on patterns as well as graphs.  We are learning to name patterns, too (AB, AAB, ABB, ABC, etc.)! We will wrap up our balls and ramps study on Friday ,and parents are invited to view our ramps and roadways on Friday at 12:45pm!!!

Math time in Mrs. Simpson's Room!

Here are some pictures of us learning about math manipulatives. This year we will use counting bears, pattern blocks, 3-D shapes, counters, and much more while we learn new math concepts!

This week...

September 8-11:
Reading this week will focus on sequencing events, letter names/sounds, characters, setting, rhyming, and syllables! In math we will learn positional terms (over, on, below, in, out, left, right, etc.). We will also continue our counting practice. Our new science unit begins this week...balls and ramps! We will learn about properties of motion, like speed!! Sound like a busy week, huh? :)
