Remote Weekly Letter 6.4.21

Remote Newsletter:

This week, we read the book When I was Little and discussed the many ways the girl in the book changed as she grew from baby to child. We also built text-to-self connections by discussing the ways each of us change as we grow. Together we responded to our read aloud by drawing pictures and writing words to describe themselves “then” and “now.” Some of our ideas included talking, walking, eating different foods, and playing with different toys like bikes and scooters.

With our families at home we used string measured to our own birth length to compare with objects around our homes.  We really enjoyed seeing how small we were as babies and how tall we are now!

We also reviewed vocabulary related to our Babies unit by playing BINGO with our friends. We practiced counting and this time noticed the letters at the start of some words!

Next week, we will begin our last unit “Transformation!”

Hybrid Newsletter:

This week, we read the book When I was Little and discussed the many ways the girl in the book changed as she grew from baby to child. As a class we brainstormed a list of vocabulary words and ideas related to the main idea of the read aloud. We also built text-to-self connections by discussing the ways each of us change as we grow.

At the Writing Center children responded to our read aloud by drawing pictures and writing words to describe themselves “then” and “now.” Some of our ideas included talking, walking, eating different foods, and playing with different toys like bikes and scooters.

At the Math Center children used string measured to their birth length to compare with objects around the classroom.  We really enjoyed seeing how small we were as babies and how tall we are now!

Next week, we will begin our last unit “Transformation!”
