Weekly Update

The phonics letter of the week was A.
The handwriting letter of the week was F.
The number of the week was 4.
The theme of this week was apples.
The book of the week was Ten Apples on Top by Dr. Seuss.

We used this book to practice counting to ten.

And then we made our own version ofย Ten Apples on Top!

Each student got to pick how many apples they wanted on top

and then they put that many apples on top of their head! ๐Ÿ˜‰



We learned about letter A and picked out items that begin with the letter A.

We learned about Johnny Appleseed and celebrated his birthday with an apple craft!

We kept our apple craft at school because we wanted the teachers and students in our class to see what a great job we did on them!
We thought that the classroom door was a great place to put it so it can match Ms. Bowdell’s apple!

We also had a pizza party this week!
Our speech-language therapist, Mrs. Gallery; our social worker, Mrs. Cartier; and our occupational therapist, Ms. Britt, threw us a pizza party!
They were nice enough to get pizzas from Hungry Howie’s and share.
During the pizza party, we practiced our social skills (requesting, speaking in full sentences, answering questions). We also got to make lemonade! Each student got to add their own ingredients and mix their own cup of lemonade.

 

We had a fun week at school! ๐Ÿ™‚

Mariam just loves taking pictures with Ms. Bowdell!
