What We've Been Learning:
Whole Group Learning:
Read it Again: Dog Breath. Our goals for this story are to understand and use new words describing aspects of books and print, to talk about the meaning of new words, including how words can have more than one meaning (breathtaking, breathless and 'lose your breath'), to produce words that share a rhyming pattern, and to produce a personal story that has a clear beginning, middle and end.
Creative Curriculum: The Little Red Hen. The goals for this reading are to recall the characters and the problem, expand vocabulary to included hoed and kneaded, and to comment on and answer comprehension questions.

- Jumping Beans number identification game
- Geoboard shape building
- Journals focusing on using jolly phonics letter sounds to write words describing our drawings
- Counting boxes with a partner
