Circle maps!  Hats!  Handwriting!

### We will be using our Community Helpers research project to learn about the people who help us!

Also, check out our new Transportation research project that goes perfectly with community helpers!

For each community helper we will read an informational text.  As we read our text, we will complete our tree map.  We complete the tree map AS WE READ and not after!  Completing the tree map after the read aloud is a form of assessment and that’s not what I want to do!   Then we will label our community helpers and do a directed drawing of each one!

This week we’re learning about police officers, firefighters, veterinarians!

### Math-Counting On/What Number Comes Next

In math, we are going to introduce counting and what number comes next.  This starts off very simply by doing it verbally.  I will give a number and we count on from that number.

Day 2 is using a number line to count on.  This also helps with number recognition and gives students visual reminders of what number comes next!  We ouse Sit Spots to make our number line!   IF you don’t use SitSpots in your classroom YOU MUST USE THEM!  They are officially Mr. Greg endorsed!

I say a number, the student finds that number and we count on from that number.  Then the whole class counts on!   Independent and whole group practice!

### Check out this post for more on counting on!

Then we will practice counting on with dice and doing some independent work!

Here’s a freebie for you!  An American symbols counting on recording sheet!
