Today in reading we read the book The Snowman. We listened to the poem Grandfather and I about a grandfather and grandson who like to take slow walks together. We also practiced counting out the sounds in words. In the AM we had some fun counting by 10s. We discovered that 20 students equals 200 fingers. Did your child figure out how many fingers are in your household? We also learned what the numbers 1/6/09 meant. In the PM we had just enough time to get in another handwriting sheet. We learned about the first corner capital letter, H. I have added the January book club to the Scholastic site. The deadline for your orders is January 23rd.
