Literacy Small Groups
-Letters in My Name Class Book- We will be counting and comparing letters in our names to create a new class book. It will come home with your child shortly.
-Journals- We will do more journal writing to write about our families.  
Handwriting/Letter Groups
-Handwriting Without Tears Program-We will learn what the uppercase and lowercase letter T and I looks like.  We will sort magnetic letters to find matches for Qq and Gg.  Then we will hunt for them in our names and the names of our classmates.  We will use crayons to hunt for them on our papers.

Math Small Groups
-Subitize How Many?- We will be subitizing (knowing the total of how many without counting) with quantities 1, 2, and 3. We will try to know how many are hiding under a bucket quickly before the teacher covers the total. This is an important skill to learn in both math and reading readiness.
-How many people in the house?- Using a five frame we will develop math stories using people counters.
-How many on the bus? Using a five frame and pictures of friends, we will count 5 friends and then develop math skills about the people on the bus.

Science/Social Studies/Math Circle Concepts
-How do we grow up?
- Math Concept- Stack & Take Down Four Cubes-We will work on understanding that no matter the order we count them, objects in a set remain the same.  We will use a set of blocks to build a house and counted them carefully.  Then, we used the same set of blocks to build a new house.  Each time, we counted the blocks to find the quantity stayed the same no matter what order we counted them in.
