Week 11

This weeks highlights:

We spent time in the classroom talking about leaders.  We identified different reasons for having leaders and who some leaders are that we know.  This was a great conversation that led well to an introduction on the presidential election.  We used the basis of the book, Duck for President.  We talked about voting (being private, voting only once, making difficult choices) and gave each child the opportunity to have a private vote for either Duck or Farmer.  Duck received the most votes from our class.  We also discussed the importance of accepting results even if the one we voted for was not elected.

Number sense continues to be our math focus.  We have been using a variety of different math manipulatives to develop an understanding of "part-part-whole." 

We hope you had the chance to see your child's newest published book on seesaw.  We are very proud of the authors in our class!
