- Finding the difference between two numbers using the number grid
- Graphing- Bar graphs and line plots
- Telling time
We have been doing Math centers after our whole group mini lessons. This is a time where the students rotate between a variety of activities to help reinforce and practice the skill for the day. They have time on the iPad, time with the teacher in small groups, time to practice independently, and time working on an activity or game with a partner.
*Please continue to support your child with practice in counting money and telling time. Simply just asking them to tell you the time during various moments throughout the day (if you have an analog clock at home) would be great reinforcement and practice. Thank you! :)
Making a line plot based on our favorite ice cream flavors
- Last week we worked on how to choose a just right book for our independent reading and all of the different genres of books that are available to us as readers.
- This week we read "A Fine, Fine School" and discussed story structure and summarizing.
- We started the Daily 5 where the students rotate to different centers in small groups to work on the skills and vocabulary for the week with a book on their instructional level. The centers include: Read to Self, Read to Someone, Meet with Teacher, Word Work, and Work on Writing.
- In grammar, we worked on finding the subject and the predicate of a sentence.
Is our book a "Just Right" book?
We learned about the 5 finger rule, and deciding whether a book is too easy, just right, or too challenging. Then, after independently reading a book of our choice, we took a survey on a app called Plickers. Below are the results from our plickers survey and pictures from how the survey works. (I scan my phone to capture the QR code responses that the students hold up.)
