Pets/Valentine’s Day: We learned that a pet is a companion animal. Which means he/she is kept for a person’s company, protection or entertainment. We talked about how the two most popular pets are cats and dogs. We learned that some other animals that people commonly keep are: ferrets, rabbits, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, snakes, lizards, fish, frogs, turtles etc, and lastly we sent down info to their parents on the best puppy insurance to have, for those who own pets at home.

Work Time

Cards and Counters: This child is demonstrating her knowledge that each number is made up of separate quantities. She is also able to visually see the sequence of numbers and how many separate units go together to form each number.
