Line Time:

Food Chains was the subject for the week.  We learned or was reminded that animals eat other animals.  The animal that is doing the eating is called the predator and the animal getting eaten is called the prey.  Food Chains can be one, two, three, four part food chains.  For example….  You have corn getting eaten by a mouse.  The mouse gets eaten by a snake.  The snake gets eaten by a hawk.

 

Cultural Subjects:

We can now count to ten in 27 different languages (English, Sign Language, Latin, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili, Welsh,  Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo-Croation, Cebuano, Malay, Hindi, Farsi, and Turkish).

Peek In Our Classroom:

This student is working on rhyming words. Words that actually rhyme because they have the same ending sounds. An example is the “at” word family: bat, cat, fat, hat, mat, pat, rat, sat, etc. Using this approach to reading, children learn the phonic sounds of each letter and then begin reading words within word families. Children that have been exposed to rhyming can hear the similarities in words which aids them in early reading and spelling skills!

 

These two are working on the 100 board. Notice how they placing/the order the tiles on the board. Backwards!

 

He is working on the Teen Board. Did you notice what pattern he came up with?
