February 27th-March 3rd
Last week we described the connection between two unique environments by comparing and contrasting specific points the authors made in each text. We asked and answered questions and used information gained from the illustrations and words in order to demonstrate an understanding of the similarities and differences between the setting and events in “Dear Primo.” We also used information gained from illustrations and words to recount the events in pourquoi tales and identify the central message presented by the author. On Thursday, we discussed and celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday and contributions he made to English literature.
Last week in math we continued working on story problems with two digit numbers. We used a grid to fill in a given number and determined the difference between a number and a multiple of 10 up to 100. We identified missing numbers on the hundreds chart and explained how we knew where to put the number. We played roll a square and created our own game boards. This week we added multiples of 5 and 10 up to 100 by playing the game, Get to 100. We also used our knowledge of adding and subtracting multiples of 10 to solve number strings with two digit numbers. We reviewed our coins and played the game, Collect a Dollar. Ask your child to share their favorite game with you!
