Room 103 News

We are off to a wonderful start!!!!

What Are We Learning About?

Reading: We are working on letter sounds and digraphs. The digraph sounds are: ch, th, wh, sh, ck. We made reading goals for ourselves for Trimester 1. Guided Reading Groups have begun and the children are listening to stories, reading on Raz Kids and working in small groups with me.

Math: We have been building teen numbers. Students are learning that a teen number is a 10 and some more. Ex. 13 is a 10 and a 3. We will be working on telling time to the hour and half hour and 2D/3D shapes. Now we are focusing on nonstandard measurement. Here is a link to a video I created to help understand transitivity. We are currently working on this topic. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bzd6S_d88DKjQlZwLWN2Z1NCeFE/view

Social Studies: We are beginning our unit on Community Helpers.
