Even the bus ride was fun!
Reading and Writing:
When we come back from Spring break our focus will switch back to Informational text and reading and writing to tell information. We will begin Nonfiction research and report writing as well as continue using our Nonfiction comprehension strategies to gain information about our social studies topic; American Symbols.
This Units main focus is addition and subtraction facts and strategies. It is broken down into four main parts:
- To introduce fact-finding strategies
- To review coin values, measurements, and time
- To develop procedures for addition and subtraction problems
- To introduce MY REFERENCE BOOK, which is like a simple reference guide 1st and 2nd grade students use.
When we return from break we will explore subtraction strategies, quarters, and more time practice. Counting coins using pennies, nickels, and dimes would be a great review over break. Be sure to practice making exchanges, using fewer coins for similar totals, and finding the difference of how much more one total is than another.
