The weather forecast was calling for a chance of snow this weekend.  I was actually looking forward to seeing a bit of the white stuff, but I know I will regret that feeling soon enough! We were lucky enough to have the additional pieces to our outdoor playground installed over the weekend with a fresh coating of woodchips.  I’m hoping that the temperature will warm up a bit this week so we can get outside and try it out.

We began a science unit on the four seasons.  We will continue with this unit throughout the month.  The children are becoming familiar with the change of the seasons and what it brings to our environment.  Our ELA focus is continuing to be sequence of events and making predictions while we are reading.  I know your little ones are not reading independently, but our whole group read-alouds provide this practice.  It is an important reading skill and builds strong comprehension.

 Our math focus continues to be hands on exploration using all the fun manipulatives we have in the classroom.  We will be working on creating and reading simple graphs in class over the next few weeks. Students entering kindergarten next year will use this information to create simple addition and subtraction sentences.
