BRRRR! It’s Cold Outside! Welcome to 2010!

After 2 relaxing weeks off it was time to get down to business in our classroom!  We started our year off with a theme using the story The Mitten by Jan Brett.  She also wrote the Gingerbread Baby and Gingerbread Friends and the kids love her peek a book pictures!  We read a few other folktales of The Mitten this week also.  We did some compare and contrast of the story versions and will also use the story The Hat by Jan Brett to compare/contrast using a Venn Diagram.  We had planned to do this on Friday when we had the surprise day off from school because of the cold!  We did work hard the 3 days we got back from break.  We were working on digraphs of sh, ch, th, cth, and wh.  In math we are working on using a hundreds board to see patterns and are looking forward to doing our “Mitten Math” when we get back on Monday!  During centers this week the kids got to sort mittens by attributes, use mittens as non-standard measurement to measure things in the classroom, played “Mitten Bingo” using a + and – die to generate number sentences, and created a Mitten ABC order.  They always work hard at centers.  We got to make a cute Mitten Friend after reading the stories The Missing Mitten Mystery and The Mitten Tree.
