Red Bridge Elementary - Ms. Stalter & Mrs. Strahm

This week . . .

Reading - We are working toward our 1st Quarter Reading Goal (it is written in our

planners). We also are working on increasing our reading accuracy and fluency to support comprehension.

Math - We have taken 4 benchmarks (addition, subtraction, estimation, and adding numbers within 1000). We are continuing with subtraction and starting MULTIPLICATION this week!

Science - We have been learning the Scientific Method as well as building excitement for our upcoming Science Project! Check out STEVE SPANGLER on you tube to see some great science activities!

Writing - We have written our first piece and taken it all the way through the writing process (check out our bulletin boards!). We will continue to work on storytelling through writing.

Social Studies - We are continuing to learn about communities.
