Day One was busy, busy, busy! We read a story titled Yo! Yes? It's about two boys who met and ended up playing together even though one of them was very shy. Later, we read a story about a teacher with first day of school jitters and yes, I did admit that I had had the jitters before school began today! I'll try to post most of our READ TOs on the Shelfari bookcase found on the sidebar section of this blog.
Tomorrow I will send home the second letter for Unit 1 in Everyday Math. The program starts out slowly. Today we talked about our Math Concepts board which I also call our Numbers board. Then we discussed classroom jobs. Many of the jobs tie in with math data that we collect and organize daily. There was a little bit of time to explore our math tubs during our rainy day morning recess. The numberline is reviewed tomorrow through a fun game that some may have played last year. It's called "Monster Squeeze".
