We read the story I’ve Seen Santa and continued to practice making predictions on what they think would happen next in the story. Students guessed who Little Bear would see when he goes to go check out different noises he hears downstairs.
Then for math we reviewed how to make patterns and then we learned that we can make directional patterns. For an art activity we made candy cane patterns.
In the afternoon we have both reading workshop and math workshop. This is where our students work in multi-leveled groups on specific skills that have been previously taught or we’re just learning. Currently in Kindergarten we’re working on patterns and numbers 0-100. In 1st grade we’ve been learning about addition facts up to 12 and anchors of 10 in addition.
