This week we are learning about what a community is and the important people that help us in our community. We started out by reading a story called Everybody Works and played a game on the whiteboard where students picked community helpers that could help solve an everyday problem. Then students matched the top of a specific community helper to their uniform.

Today we talked about teachers, a very familiar community helper, and their roles within the community. Then we practiced proper sentence structure for our word work, and adding details to a picture. Students learned how to add the important details that tell the reader that the picture shows a teacher. For example they drew students, number wall, bookshelf, whiteboard, and carpet.


We have continued to learn about poems and today we listened to the poem 5 Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate on the SMART board.  We listened to the song and learned ordinal numbers by following along with the song / poem.

Then to practice what we’ve learned about ordinal numbers, we played an ordinal numbers matching game.  Students stood up in front of the room while other students sat down and called out two different ordinal numbers, “I’ll pick the 2nd student and the 5th student”.  If they made a match with the Halloween picture they scored a point.
