Pretty soon, I will be sending home a volunteer sign up for those that are interested. This will include chaperones. I want to make sure that anyone interested in chaperoning or volunteering has the correct paperwork on file for an upcoming field trip we will have. I sent an email for directions on exactly how to do this last week.


Daily 5

During our literacy time in our classroom, we use a structure called The Daily 5. In the beginning, this structure is put into place helping teach children to be independent with literacy tasks. Once students are taught the behaviors of the tasks and build their stamina for independence, I will be able to work with individuals and small groups. This week, we continued building stamina for Read to Self. Students made a huge jump up to 8 minutes of stamina! Way to go!!


Module 2- Meet the Number Rack

The five sessions in this module are designed to solidify students’ number sense to 10 and provide early work with facts to 10. Students explore number combinations for 5 and 10 in contexts that help them become familiar with fact families and also elicit higher forms of mathematical thinking. The module introduces two essential mathematical models: ten-frames and the number rack. These models support students to visualize numbers, number relationships, and number combinations. They also promote development of strategies that will eventually lead to mastery of basic addition and subtraction facts. The last session includes a quick assessment.



We reviewed short vowel sounds this week.
