WHAT'S HAPPENING

Math: This week we began Topic 2: Understanding Subtraction. We have been identifying the whole in a subtraction sentence and the "part I know". We have been using those numbers to find the "missing part".


Reader's Workshop: This week we focused on partner reading. We learned different ways to read with someone (choral, echo and turn taking). We also talked about how to coach and cheer on your partner when they are reading.


Writer's Workshop: This week we focused on using our writing partners to help us edit and revise our writing. We read our friend's writing and helped them fix their mistakes. We also talked about telling stories step by step.


Science/Social Studies: This week we continued learning about social studies. We talked about conflict and cooperation. We discuss how rules and laws are similar. We will continue learning about government for the next few days.
