We Are Learning...
We are well into writing our Personal Narratives and the kids are LOVING it! We are focusing on small moments that have happened in our lives and making books from those experiences that have happened to us. We have been reading mentor texts to help us understand how a Personal Narrative is written and how to s-t-r-e-t-c-h the story by adding details.
In math, we will begin to wrap up our study on Addition and Subtraction Strategies. We will review some of these before moving on (fact families, doubles, adding 3 numbers, solving addition and subtraction word problems, and writing number sentences)...We will be moving onto Working with Equal Groups where we will be practicing repeated addition and building arrays.
