What a week of bad luck… on the way into school this morning Isabel tripped somehow and fell onto the rain soaked ground skinning her knee. I took her into the bathroom to see the damage that was done and cleaned up her pants. After wiping up the wound, we headed to class to get a bandage from Mrs. Boettcher. Hopefully next week is a bit smoother for her.
Today is free-choice Friday! Isabel absolutely loves this day. Today she played with buttons and cups making cupcakes. During recess outside, she played with several of the other kids, who were playing tag.
Phonics work with the letter “Jj“.
Back: Phonics work.
Writing practice with the letter “Mm“.
Back: Hey diddle diddle the cat Megan, played the fiddle. The cow jumped over the moon. Matt the dog danced. While the cow and mouse had milk. Moo!
Today she got her new reading homework.
“Big, Bigger, Biggest” by Edward W. Dolch and Marguerite P. Dolch. A book about animals in Africa and some here at home, like the moose and grizzly bear. She read through it once this afternoon and we’ll work on reading it again over the weekend to take back on Monday for a new one.
Mrs. Boettcher also let her borrow a book as well.
“The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Birthday” by Stan and Jan Berenstain.
It’s Sister Bear’s sixth birthday and they decide to have a “small” party, which turns into a large affair. By the time the party is just about to wrap up, Sister bear gets overwhelmed with it all. Isabel loves reading about the Bear family and it’s great to see her enjoy these books that often teach a very good lesson too.
Beautiful work with the number 12.
Learning that some shapes when fit together, form new shapes. Great job!
