We started our pumpkin unit on measuring how many pumpkins tall we were then making a class book. When we finished our writing how tall we were we found friends and discussed who was taller and who was shorter; we then put the whole class in order from tallest to shortest.

Pumpkin Writing

Pumpkin Patterns

We did patterns using different costumes. I gave the children the sheet and they had to color, cut then put them in a pattern of their choice and label.

Fiction and Non-Fiction

We have been learning about Fiction and Non-Fiction books, as I read a book we discuss which one it is then chart. The children are referring back to it as we read and discuss new books.

Math Tubs

Here are a few things I do for math tubs. We do tubs about four times a week after our regualar math lesson, this gives me time to work with the children in a small group setting.

Nocturnal Animals

I read Stellaluna and we made a double bubble map comparing and contrasting birds and bats, then the children had to draw pictures of nocturnal and non-nocturnal animals.

Write from the Beginning

We use the program Write from the beginning for our writing; for the first six weeks I model a narrative sentence with a detailed picture then the children write their sentences. I focus on having the children drawing a detailed picture of themselves and the setting, and attempt to write word wall words and beginning sounds to words.

I really like the program and the children are showing great improvement since the beginning of school. Here are a few pictures of thier writing in October.

Action words

We started working on action words this week. I read our big book of the week on Tuesday and the children told me the action words from the book then on Wednesday they gave me action words for our circle map as I typed the words. We went to the computer lab on Thursday and the children made their own circle maps then they printed their work.


The Grand Prairie Fire Department came on October 4th to discuss fire safety.
