 We are learning about 2-D and 3-D shapes.  This past week we took a walk around the school to see if we could find shapes in the environment.  Our rockstars put a tally mark on  their chart each time they found a shape.  We had some very interesting data, but everyone did a great job in their own way.  In this next week we will be talking about how  we compose shape (put one or more shapes together to make another), and how we decompose shapes (take larger shapes apart).
 Our rockstars are doing an awesome job picking out letters, words and sentences.  We know that a letter is just a letter, letters make words, and words make sentences.  We are also beginning to understand that sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a punctuation mark.  (Ask your rockstar to read the sentences above to you.  They are doing an outstanding job).
This past week talked about how the author has a purpose to their writing.  They write to persuade, inform or to entertain you.  Our rockstars did awesome job picking out where the picture would go.  They were asked is the author trying to persuade you to buy or give them something,,,,or is he/she giving you information.... or lastly did he/she just write for your entertainment.  It is so amazing how much a 5 or 6 year can tell you. They may be small, but they are very smart and think just like a rockstar does.

In the week ahead..........
Letters - Uu, Nn
Sight Words - but, us, not, on, up, down
