As we continue to learn about the roles people in our community can have, we also worked on reading skills. We started by learning how to partner read with reading one word at a time, following along with our partners. Students read an emergent reader that talked about things that start with the /m/ sound.
Even though we can’t go on real field trips because of the pandemic we learned about places in the community by going on a virtual field trip to a post office. Then students created a flip book with their pictures that showcased different jobs they could have. Then students wrote about what they want to be when they grow up.
This last week students learned about our community and the different places that our important to our community. We also learned about the different helpers in our community and talked about what we want to be when we grow up. We started with reading the book Pizza at Sally’s and then created an anchor chart with the order of how Sally made the pizza.
For writing students worked on copying writing prompts and completed a sentence talking about what they want to be when they grow up. They also worked on adding details to their pictures illustrating what they want to be.
For art students colored and traced a flip book that illustrated themselves as different community helpers. They glued a picture of themselves on top of the flipbook to make them appear to be wearing the uniform of the community helper.
We read the story “Gingerbread Boy” and sequenced the story in the correct order of who chased after the Gingerbread boy.
We also watched another version of The Gingerbread Man on the smart board and wrote about things that we would run away from. We also made a gingerbread flip book using describing words.
