This week we are finshing up our week 6. This has been a great week. In language arts, in science, and especially social studies.
In language arts we have learned about verbs. We are working on action words. Tater has worked really hard at being able to distinguish between a noun and a verb. We have worked on making sure that our nouns and verbs are making proper sense in our sentences. Also since we are working on verbs We have been doing lots of jumping, clapping, and movement to help us learn about verbs.
In math, we have moved from the 1 family to the 2 family. Tater has had some problems with her 2 family. We've been dealing with temper tantrums in math. We've dealt with her learning that temper tantrums we are learning about community helpers. The helpers this week are fire fighters. We will be taking a field trip to the fire fighters on next week. The kids have made pictures and a thank you cards for the firemen. They are looking forward to this trip and so am I.
In spelling we are testing on our short i words. She did not do well on her pretest. Tater could not distinguish between the sound of e and i. So we've worked hard to learn the difference. We will see if our hard work has paid off.
So that's about it for week 6. Stay tuned for week 7.
This is the thank you letter we are giving to the fire fighters on our visit to the fire station.
