If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff The consequences of giving a cookie to this energetic mouse run the young host ragged, but young readers will come away smiling at the antics that tumble like dominoes through the pages of this delightful picture book.
The Mitten by Jan Brett One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in; first, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse and what happens next makes for a wonderfully funny climax.
In math, will be working with numbers. We will review numbers 0-10 on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence, and sequencing.
We would like your support on occasionally review counting and numbers. Here are some songs we use in class every day:
