- Add the ones
- Regroup if needed
- Then add the tens
We will have a fact quiz on Thursday even with Early Release. Students can practice facts on Quizlet to increase fact fluency. This site has interactive flashcards and games students can play to learn facts. Students may need to study the same set of facts for more than one week before moving on to a new set.
Students will go back to the text to find answers to questions in reading. They will learn how to "turn the question around," to start their answer in a complete sentence.
This week in spelling lesson 24, we will study words with added suffixes- s and -es
Spellingcity is a popular site to practice.
In writing, students will write an opinion piece about the First Thanksgiving. They will decide if they would like to attend and then explain their answer.
We will review and wrap up our science unit on weather mid-week. Next we will begin our social studies unit on economics.
Each student will have the opportunity to be the "meteorologist for the day" by sharing the weather forecast at morning meeting in our classroom. Please assist your child on their day to prepare the forecast. Visit this link and enter zip code to see daily weather forecast.
