Time has flown and the month of January has come and gone. In January we started learning about our 5 senses and about different jobs. We learned that are eyes are very important. We use them to see and without them getting around in the world would be very difficult. We also learned about how we use our ears to hear. We discovered all of the different types of sounds that can be heard and created around us. For each sense we learn we have made a special props that represents it. So far we have made binoculars and shakers. In social studies we are learning that there are many different types of jobs in the world and each one is special in their own way. So far we have focused on helpers such as police officers and firefighters.
In language arts and math we have been expanding our knowledge of letters and numbers. We are trying to understand the sounds letters make and different ways they can be put together. We have also continued to have reading time with our second grade buddies at the end of the day on Fridays. We have been practicing writing out numbers 0-20 and been trying to gain a greater understanding for what these numbers mean and how to recognize them.
We have seen some special events this month. We had a new friend join our class this month, Sajjad. He has been a great addition to our class and we all enjoy having him here. We also had our first Jeopar-bee of the year. Students showed of their knowledge in a fun game that is a mix of a spelling bee and Jeopardy. To take a look at our month, check out the pictures below!
