Where smiles happen every day!
May 9, 2016
Things have been exciting and busy around Meadowbrook Farms school. We have enjoyed PBIS rallies, Reading Week, seed plantings and Mother's Day crafts. Here's hoping we will be able to enjoy some outdoor recess this week...rain, rain go away!
We are continuing our phonics exploration in Unit 13 this week. We will be exploring inflected endings (s, es, ing) on our words. As always, we will use a variety of modalities to learn and master these words...dry erase boards, tile boards, dictation and body spelling. You never know what the day will hold!
We finished our math assessments on solving all addition and subtraction problem types within 20. Students worked on using various strategies to find the solutions. We practiced with ten frames, number lines, diagrams, double facts, double plus 1 and part/part whole. Students were expected to retrieve the important information from the word problems, circle important information and chose a strategy that would work best in determining a solution. Students have done a wonderful job familiarizing themselves with all the strategies and using them appropriately.
We are currently working on telling time to the half hour as well as representing and organizing data. Students will be working on picture and bar graphs throughout this unit of study.
things to look forward to...
