Fun in the Classroom

Here are pictures of fun and learning this week. You will notice many pictures of our "Counting Words" activity. We used M&Ms to count the number of words in sentences. It helped work on 1:1 correspondence, counting, understanding that sentences are made up of individual words, sentence structure, and memory. It also included eating the props and that was yummy! Miss Stephanie said a sentence such as "The dog is brown" and we had to put M&Ms in line-one for each word. Then we read back the sentence while pointing one by one to the "words". We figured out if we had the right number, too many, or too few. Some of us even started making up our own sentences. This is a fun activity you can do at home with cheerios, candy, or crackers to make eating a snack a learning experience!
