The idea of a word beginning with their names, actions and through stories. Breaking words into syllables by counting “claps” blending syllables to determine words. Zoo Phonics! – 26 animals at the zoo will help us learn to read and write. Students have begun to build a “word wall” of High Frequency words as a reference for reading and writing.  I  am  see   at   can   come I am hoping to post the wall soon!   Math-  Numbers from 1-5; Students go beyond counting and explore numbers as they relate to quantities, and each other.  Key skills are recognizing more/fewer, counting on and back from a given number, Part Part Whole- various combinations to make a certain amount.
