Today we explored numbers that are greater than 12, less than 12 and equal to 12. This was our first step in comparing numbers up to 20 with the greater than, less than, and equal to symbols. As we work on writing and comparing numbers for the rest of the month we'll be using this vocabulary as well as the written symbols.
In wrapping up a few reading sets today I'm excited to move each group forward this week. In the spring in preschool we begin to read stories that have more content, therefore we can work on comprehension of text. We've spent a lot of time in the very beginning stages of reading (sounding out CVC words, learning about sight words, learning digraphs like /sh/ and /th/) and now we're ready to move into reading for meaning - a much more fun type of reading. So, though it takes a long time to learn to read we are making progress and having fun!
