Today we used our magic finger to point to the words when we were reading with our reading partner. We circled the snap words: look, at and the in our Hansel and Gretel book. We told Mrs. Kitson that we are reading our little books each night. She said that is the best way to learn how to read. We wrote in our lifebooks. We are using many different tools to help us write. We use the alphabet and vowel charts, pictionaries and we also use our read about the world books to copy print. We have sentence starters that we can pick from also. We had fun making the house into a Leprechaun House. Gingy sent us a letter with a book, a snake and some shamrocks. The book was about a snake and St. Patrick. Ask me about the book. We had a green kind of day in KIndergarten.
Today Mrs. Kitson read us the story, The Three Questions by Jon J. Muth. The Three Questions are: Who is the most important one? What is the best thing to do? and What is the best time? Ask me what the answers to these questions are. We are taking home the book, Rapunzel. We circled the snap words, he and she. We practiced writing in our life books. We clapped the syllables, used the alphabet chart and looked in books to copy different words. We are stretching out the sounds in words. We are practicing making patterns with blocks and then colouring our patterns on paper. We went to the library and are bringing home a non-fiction book. We call them read about the world books.
