This week we have been talking about our families and how they are important to us.  We read the story “I Love It When You Smile” by .  We made text to self connections by writing about how someone in our family tries to make us feel better when we’re sad.

We then made a family tree that showed how many members of our family lived with us.  Then students shared with the class a picture of their family and shared about who the members of their family are.

On Monday we started our unit on fall.  During our calendar time we sang the song Four Seasons in a Year by Harry Kindergarten and came up with movements to go along with the song.  Students had fun trying to guess which season Harry Kindergarten was describing.

We then created a read life venn diagram to compare and contrast summer and fall.  Students did a cut and paste activity sorting pictures into seasons that they best fit in.

We read the story Clifford’s First Autumn by Norman Bridwell and made a list of fall activities that Clifford and Emily Elizabeth participated in.  Then students made a text to self connection by writing about what activity from the story that they like to do.

Today we went through a Brain Pop Jr. lesson on fall and did a autumn leaves finger stamping art project.  Students pressed their fingers into ink pads and made autumn leaf trees and picked which fall color they liked the best.
