Galaxy room week in review 9/4-9/7
Galaxy room Week in Review
Notes and Reminders
- Every day students sign themselves in on their own sign in sheets while parents sign in on the state roster. Please remind/encourage your student to attempt this task each day. This small amount of practice makes a big difference and is an important part of the day!
- Thanks to June’s family for the delicious snack this week
- Please make sure your child has a water bottle every day & a change of clothes in their cubby.
Monday: No School
Tuesday: In Morning Meeting we introduced the month of September during our calendar time, and we continued counting the days we have attended school with our Hundreds Chart. This week we began our first unit of the year, All About Me. During group time, we read Whoever You Are by Mem Fox, and we discussed our similarities and differences. I was really interesting to hear about our new friends. For our special project, we painted our hands and created hand prints! We also began sharing our amazing Life in A Bag projects!
Wednesday: We continued discussing All About Me, and in group time we read I Like Myself by Karen Beaumont. For our special project, we examined our facial features in a mirror and used sharpies and watercolors to create self-portraits. What talented artist we have in the Galaxy room! We continued sharing our Life in A Bag projects with each other throughout the day.
Thursday: During group time we read Jabari Jumps by Gaia Cornwall and talked about the things that make us feel brave and happy just like Jabari. We continued sharing our Life in A Bag projects and learning more about our new friends! We also wrapped up our self-portraits with vivid water colors. These projects will be hanging up in the classroom, come check them out! You will be so impressed with our beautiful works of art.
Friday: Today we read Here Are My Hands by Martin and Archambault, and Now I’m Big by Margaret Miller. During group time we discussed our upcoming alphabet study. Each week we will focus on a letter, practicing letter sounds, writing the letter, and exploring words that begin with that letter. Our first letter will be Aa. We will be asking your student to bring in an item (no toys please) that begins with that letter. We were also able to finish up some projects from the week.
Have a fantastic weekend-
