If I were President

This week we worked to finish up our unit on the election, focusing on the three branches of government and what each one does. The K-Kids were interested to hear about 'veto' power and how the president has to work with many other groups of people to get things done. As the election approaches this week we will all be watching to see what happens. 

Language Arts: 
This week we finished up another rotation of literacy stations. As I am continuously assessing the K-Kids, and meeting with you for conferences, it was so interesting to see how far they have already come. I cannot believe we have already had 2 full months of school and I have a group of 16 readers on my hands! As our stations continue throughout the year, we will continue to focus on various phonic, phonemic, reading, and writing skills that will best prepare them to develop a true love of reading and writing. 

We also finished up our math work stations this week, where many of the K-Kids are working to order/compare two-digit numbers, complete addition/subtraction skills, and started Moby Max. Moby Max is a great website where the K-Kids are able to work on math skills at his/her own level. I have them working on iPads to complete the various math lessons, but there is access on the computer as well. If you would like to do Moby Max with your K-Kid at home, simply have them login using their first name as both the username and password (creative I know!). Moby Max changes the difficulty of the content based on how the student solves problems. 

This week we continued our Pumpkin Jack science experiment, which is already showing some signs of change. In just a couple weeks he will truly be DISGUSTING! We also were able to travel up to Mrs. Shower's Biology Lab to conduct some spooky science with the high schoolers. This is always a treat! 

Social Studies: 
To round out the week, many of our class discussions that took place talked about what happens in Washington D.C. and the upcoming election. Many of the K-Kids have been hearing your conversations at home and have developed some strong ties to the election. It looks like we have our hands full with many tiny advocates! I love the see the determination! In the hallway, you will see the K-Kids pitches for what they would do if they were elected president. 

See you tomorrow!
