This week they are learning: following the rules, writing their name, colors and color words, alike and different, identifying shapes, living and non-living things.
They also did their first worksheet, journal page and booklet drawings today. Following directions is a difficult skill for young students who have been in "summer mode", but they will get it in time. They do a great job at listening to me read books, so I've really enjoyed reading to them. They really get into the story! Here are some photos from the day:

|This was a cutting exercise from the first day of school.|
|We have been talking about the difference between letters and words. This also teaches them how to read a graph.|
|This crazy-looking character is from a book titled, David Goes to School. We then made a chart to help us remember what rules David had trouble with. Getting the rules established early helps classroom behavior for the school year.|
