The SK's continued our Winter unit that correlates with the Seasons unit. We continued working on our winter senses booklet. Today the students focused on the sounds that we hear that reminds us of the winter season. The students had to close their eyes and listen to a variety of sounds that reminded them of winter and had to guess what they were. The students recorded their observations in their booklets with a sentence.
The students were engaged in Literacy Centers, with books and puzzles.
The SK's created their own subtraction number line manipulative that they also used to help them work on an activity sheet.
The students enjoyed music with Ms. McMillan. Here is a link to her website to see what the students were up too:https://mrsmcmillanmusic.blogspot.com/
