October is upon us

This coming week we will be working with two books; The balloon flies away, which reviews colors, and What's in the backpack?, which teaches vocabulary for things we use at school. Most are already quite comfortable saying the colors, so this week the focus will be on recognizing the characters for the different colors. On Friday we will be making a book they can take home and read to you about the different colors.

In math we will continue work with graphing, money, and ordering months as well as addition strategies and practice. Distinguishing between a nickel and a quarter seems to be quite the challenge for many. Please help them see the ways to tell them apart, and practice quizing them on money names and values.

For science we will be learning about what things fly and why.
