In Mrs. Mercer’s class we have been learning our letters by exploring the names of our classmates. We have learned that letters go together to make words or names. We know how many letters make up our names and how many syllables our name has. We are also comparing our names to see what names have the same letters and names that don’t. We have been reading interactive letter stories where we learn what begins with the letter sound and make the letter sounds throughout the story. We are also learning to identify and spell color words.
In math we have finished up our first Go Math chapter. We talked about a circle, square, triangle, rectangle and a hexagon. We also learned about their attributes and what makes each shape special. We also explored using these shapes to build other shapes. We are moving on to numbers!
Technology has been a big hit in Room 22. We have been using our smart board games during center time and have recently received wireless headphones to wear. We are pros on the I-pads and love using them during math stations and language art centers. We also have been using the computer to visit starfall.com to watch videos and play games about each letter of the alphabet.
