What We've Been Learning:
Whole Group Learning:Read it Again: Dog Breath: The Horrible Trouble with Hally Tosis by Dav Pilkey. Our goals for this story this week are: To learn some uppercase letter names, including those in own name and those of some friends or family members, to understand and use words that describe things and actions (adjectives and adverbs-focusing on color words), to identify when two words share the same first sound, and to order three of more major events in a story.
Creative Curriculum: Llama, Llama, Red Pajama. For this story we will focus on the following vocabulary words: fret, whimper, weeping, and wailing. We will discuss and invite children to share times that they have felt nervous at nighttime and who helps them to feel safe.
