This week we’ve been learning about ourselves and how we are the same and different. At the beginning of this week we read two books. The first book was a realistic fiction story called I Love My Hair! about a girl and all the different ways she could have her hair. We discussed how our hair was the same or different from her hair.
The next story was an informational text about different parts of our body. We discussed how we all may have things that makes us different there are things that are the same about us as well. Such as, all of us in the classroom have two ears, two eyes, a nose, a mouth, 10 fingers, and 10 toes. We then practiced reading from left to right reading one word at a time with our fingers to guide us.
We also looked at ways people can be different all over the world such as how names can be different in different parts of the country, we also counted the numbers of letters in our name. Finally we created all about me rainbows that illustrated different things about us such as; number of siblings, pets, favorite color, what we want to be when we grow up, etc.
