This week we are focusing on our names. First each student wrote their name on an index card. Then they put a star sticker over each vowel. We counted how many vowels were in each students' name and then we graphed our names by number of vowels.
We also wrote our first name and cut out the letters. Then each group graphed their letters on a chart paper. After, each member of the group said something that they noticed. They recorded their observations and we put them on the graphs. I will hang these in the hall for you to see!
We also focused on letters vs words. After re-reading Lunch by Denise Fleming, the students each received a mixed up sentence from the book. They cut up the words, put them back in order, glued them, and then illustrated the sentence.
