Classroom: Christmas Show Practice

For the next couple of weeks the students will be working hard to practice for their Christmas Show. They are all excited to dress up as Whos from Whoville for a Grinch themed performance. If you have any questions or did not receive Ms. Faith’s email or remind message with different ideas for costumes please let her know. The students will also be reading a variety of holiday books and doing lots of holiday crafts.

Enrichment Highlight:

For science this week we learned that oxidation is when one molecule gives another electrons. We oxidized luminal using hydrogen peroxide. When the hydrogen peroxide oxidized the luminal it began to glow.Work Time:

Movable Alphabet: This child is practicing blending and forming words using the different letter sounds she has mastered “jet” “zip” “flag” and “ax”
Addition: These children are using the golden beads to discover that when you put two small numbers together (addends) you get a larger number (sum) and that this process is called addition.
Bead Board: This child is using the bead board to do static addition. It is a more abstract way to work with the decimal system. He is also familiarizing himself with the different categories: units, tens, hundreds and thousands by looking at it in a different way.
Multiplication Bead Board: This child is practicing multiplication in a way that will lead her to the memorization of the essential multiplication tables.
