Welcome back! Happy Wednesday!

We started the day off with a few space summative presentations, with students that were away earlier this month.

Inquiry into Language
We practiced the formation and sound of the blend sound th.  The students brainstormed short words that had the "th" sound and worked on their sentence printing skills in their journals and printing booklets.  Here is the link to the song:th song

The SK listened to a read aloud story called The Mitten by Jan Brett and worked on their sequencing and sentence printing skills with a The Mitten activity.
