It was a surprise to have snow this morning! What a fun way to talk about weather. I had planned on going out in the rain but since it was awful cold snow instead we stayed inside. We talked about the different types of weather and how it changes from day to day. We talked about how weather changes with the moving air which can be hot or cold. We practiced our letter W beginning reader and drew pictures of our favorite weather. We even started exploring the idea of writing words to match our pictures in our journals. We learned about quarters today to finish out our unit about money and had a great time practicing our songs in music.
This afternoon we started off with puzzles and worked through a few last Ready2Read pages and our guided reading groups. Many of the kids are ready to start a new unit on Monday. Yay! We're currently reading the "Now I'm Reading" series of books that utilize short vowel words so we can be successful in reading. We also continued our discussion of place value and counted to 100. I had each child write their numbers as high as they could to assess where any misconceptions were.
