This week, we will identify those 3D shapes with new items we will be using to create our Neighborhoods! On Monday and Tuesday, we will have a visit from the mayor of Dublin and our Senior City Planner. They will be presenting the kids with the challenge of creating a large-scale model of a new neighborhood, considering all aspects necessary. They will need to plan jobs, draw up blueprints, and then get to work! Mrs. Hamby and I are confident that this will be a fun, engaging learning experience for the kids throughout the week!
In addition to our project, the kids will be learning greater than, less than, and equal to comparisons in mathematics, and will have a third guidance lesson for Trimester 3 with Mrs. Saridakis. We will continue to learn the "5 Finger Retell" in small groups. In whole group, we will be studying the Piggie and Elephant books, with an emphasis on character traits and the importance of illustration. Together, we will practice expression based upon these factors. Our sight words for the week will be: WHO, YOU, MY.
