We learned about characters and made our anchor chart that will hang in our room throughout the year. We also made a Baby Bear (and practiced our sight word 'a') to help us remember what a character is.
We also worked more with character when we compared and contrasted Goldilocks in two different versions of the story. Since we're not up to writing a lot yet (and we can't read), I copied things that happened in the stories on different colored paper to help the kids know what we were gluing. It worked out really well.
We practiced position words using Baby Bear and we also sorted chairs, beds, and porridge bowls according to which bear they belonged to, which the kids did really well with. These activities came from Deeanna's pack that you can see here.
We also used teddy grahams and graham crackers to practice more and less - the kids loved this activity!
Here are some of the other things we did to practice the number three:
We are starting guided reading groups Monday, so I have a ton to do before then. Hopefully I'll be back this weekend to share our literacy centers for next week.
