It's been a while

It has been a while since I have posted updates from our class, but during this time we have been quite busy.

At math we have been working with numbers up to 20. We have been using place value charts to name our tens and ones. We have been having so much fun practicing math at stations.

This month we learned about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Ms. Feuerstack read some books to us and we even had a chance to listen to part of Dr. King's I have a Dream speech. We then drew Dr. King and thought of a dream that we have for the world.

Last week we began learning about penguins. We have read several non-fiction books and have begun to collect facts on an anchor chart (Thank you to Mrs. Carroll at The First Grade Parade for the great idea). Next week we will be writing a non-fiction piece about penguins.

This past week Circleville Elementary School celebrated kindness with a week of fun spirit day. We wore animal print, hats, silly socks, and school shirts. We also wrote about what it means to be kind. Here is what we came up with.
