Mrs. Rish's Class Skills Agenda
During the next two weeks, we will learn about snow! We will use fiction and nonfiction texts to learn more about the topic. Students will prepare questions and complete a snow-based project.
We are continuing to work through the five areas of Daily Five. This design gives students lots of practice in the most essential aspects of literacy.
Science & Social Studies
We will continue to study the American Revolution with Liberty's Kids. We also will use our Studies Weekly magazines that help us with both reading and social studies content.
Our I CAN statements for the week will be:
- I CAN use place value disks to solve an addition problem.
- I CAN use number bonds to solve an addition problem.
- I CAN use vertical form to solve an addition problem.
- I CAN use the chip model to solve an addition problem.
- I CAN show how different strategies relate to the traditional algorithm.
