We did it!!!! Your donations came pouring in this week and we are beyond grateful!! As a result, Mrs. M got to enjoy a chai tea latte & the class got to enjoy a visit from Stanley the Stallion!! Way to go, little monsters (and parents)!!
We have had such a fun week learning all about community helpers! Today, we had guest speakers come to visit and tell us all about their jobs & how they help the community! We learned about different types of doctors & the tools they use. We met Officer Borne and got to hear about police life! Two of our brave firemen came to visit and teach us all about fire safety. Our very own Mrs. Campos shared her husband with us, and he talked about his time serving our country as a soldier, and explained his job as a VA nurse now! SO cool!!! We had a great time learning about all of these community helpers. Do we have a future doctor or police officer in our class? Maybe!
We had another lesson with our 1st grade partners this week on numbers on a ten frame! After they left for lunch, we got in a little more practice using the application "Kahoot!" It was SOOO much fun and so exciting to see how quickly these smarties could recognize numbers on a ten frame! Practice has paid off!
This past week we spent some time reading books about the alphabet. We read a favorite of mine, The Letters are Lost and went on a letter hunt when we realized all of our class letters had gone missing! What fun! Check out some of the lego letter building that went on this week!

This week we learned all about "fiveness" and got introduced to five frames. I was super impressed with how quickly these smarties picked it up, and am happy to say they can recognize any number to five on a five frame, in any location! Check out some pictures of them doing some partner practicing!
