Small Groups
-Family Member Syllables- We will draw members of our family and then recording the number of syllables for each member. Ask your child to show you who has the most "claps" in their name.  Who has the same

- Sequencing our storybook- We will sequence our story of The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by writing numbers, rainbow writing words,  and discussing the ordinal position of each element. To extend this activity we will take turns to retell the story to our small groups. 

-5 Little Emotional Pumpkins- We cut and arranged a 5 frame of pumpkins on a fence. Then we discussed each emotion of the pumpkin and retold the song using ordinal terms. " The first little pumpkin said I'm feeling scared".

-Scarecrow Math- We cut and placed 5 black crows on our scarecrow in different positions by listening to verbal directions. We counted each time we changed the position of the crows to reinforce the concept of 5. We can move objects to different spots and we always have 5.

- 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.
