In case you were wondering about the big dalmatian your child brought home, the assignment was to give the dalmatian puppy 101 spots - ten groups of ten plus one more. This aligns with our math standard 1.1b: "The student will group a collection of up to 100 objects into tens and ones..." We are developing our understanding of place value by working with groups of tens, adding ten to a given number, and sorting numbers from least to greatest.
In preparation for Valentine's Day, I have selected some of my favorite books about friendship and caring to read this week. Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch, oh, and Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink are both personal favorites! As a reminder, we will have a Valentine's Day party on Thursday, February 14 from 1:00 - 2:00 pm. Please see last week's post Many thanks to our room parents for organizing the party!
What is your favorite childhood Valentine's tradition?
