Counting, Counting, Counting

by Steve Krile


This Week

We counted LOTS of money this week!! First graders should be able to identify pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. We practiced counting pennies and nickels this week. Second graders should be able to make change to a dollar.

We used a life size number line this week to count up and back!

By the end of first grade Krile kids should be telling time to the hour and half hour. Second grade friends to the five minute interval.. Read those clocks at home!!

Reading and Writing

This week we continue to read books about my favorite character Fancy Nancy. Her

books are full of real life kid experiences with WONDERFUL vocabulary!!

In writer’s workshop we are putting the finishing touches on our first three projects so we are ready to celebrate them next week!

During reading workshop we read and wrote about our books this week. Groups learned about animals that live in trees, how it is important to like ourselves, moms can be silly pirates, and animal noises can be super funny!

Try and read with your Krile Kid each night before bed.

Social Studies and Science

Fall, fall, fall is all over Kriletown.  We made a class book all about the things we like to do this time of year. 

We added fall vocabulary to our books. 

Next week we will take a leaf walk around Logan and collect a few to examine.
