- Continue practicing our sight words for February. They are: come, did, have, get, love, of, said, very, will, yes. If a word comes up repeatedly in our studies we will sometimes add it to our words for the month. Last week I sent home a list of the words we have covered so far this year.
This is the time of year when teachers across the country begin to prepare for the 100th day of school. From the very first day, our class began keeping track of the number of days we have been in school. As part of our calendar routine, we add one straw to our hundreds pocket chart, then count our straws. When we have 10 single straws, we put an elastic around them to make a group of ten and move it to the tens pocket and begin again. This daily routine is setting the foundation for learning place value. On our hundreds chart, we cross off one number each day. As we approached the end of the chart, Team Awesome began to realize that we were getting very close to the hundredth day of school. Somewhere around day 80, we began counting how many days we had left until the 'big day'. Some of the children thought that would be our last day of Kindergarten and were a bit sad. And the best part? They cheered when I told them we're only a little over halfway through. Yay!
