We learned the letter Mm today and glued pictures of Mr. Mortenson in our alphabet books. Then we started phase two of our "All About Me" unit, our bodies. Today we learned about our heart and blood. We did a chant as we marched around the room about the three parts of our blood, see if your kids will do it for you:
Red cells, red cells, mighty, mighty red cells!
We carry food and oxygen everywhere we go!
White cells, white cells, mighty, mighty white cells!
We eat all the germs everywhere we go!
Platelets, platelets, mighty, mighty platelets!
We heal cuts and scrapes everywhere we go!
We read Bear's Busy Family and practiced identifying characters. We learned the word "the" today. So far the kids should be able to read the following sight words; I, a, my, and the. They also learned three new fancy words today; feast, gusto, and prepare.
In math we are comparing numbers using greater than and less than. Today we built a number line from 0-10 and made towers of blocks to demonstrate that numbers get bigger as you go up a number line. We then compared the numbers using an "alligator mouth" (greater than/less than sign). The alligator always wants a full belly so he eats up the bigger number!
