December and January Highlights!
Daily 5 CAFE
We have been so fortunate to have our Daily 5 CAFE Workshop almost everyday! Together we have continued to work with many books and our National Geographic Magazines to focus on the following strategies:
- Make and adjust predictions, use text to confirm
- Make a picture or mental image
- Use text features
- Recognizing literary elements: characters, setting, plot (b-m-e)
- Comparing and contrasting
- Use beginning and ending sounds
- Blend sounds; stretch and reread
- Reread text
- Use pictures, illustrations, and diagrams (to help figure out the meaning of a word)
We read the book "The Tale of Despereaux" and then we watched the movie. Together we wrote a list of important words from each. We each made story maps for the book and the movie, and we compared and contrasted them.

Math with Mrs. Langelier
Content Math Grade 2 and Grade 1
- Expanded Form -Say you have 162 you would write 100+60+2
- Word Form-So the number is going to be 462 you do four hundred, then you would write six tens, and then two ones.
- Unit Form - It is like when you say 242. You would write the word straight down
- Model Form-is when you use a big square for 100s, a skinny tall rectangle for 10s, and a little teeny square for 1s.
- Numeral Form -You just write the number, like 326
- Open Number Line-ex. if you were at 116 and you had to go to 200 you would use the number line to go up 8 tens and 4 ones and you would get to 200. The bumps you make for the 1's 10's and 100's would get bigger as you use bigger units as you go along. you could also go up one hundred, one ten and 6 ones
- MONEY We show money with a rectangle box with the dollar sign $ in the corner and dollar amount in the middle of the box. We are working with 1s 10s and 100s
1st graders have done sprints for addition and subtraction:
Mrs. Langelier times us and then we go over the answers. If we get it right we put a check mark and say yes. Then you put the number of how many you got right in the circle. Then we do sprint B and you try to do at least one more than you did on Sprint A.
We do application problems: You make a math picture, you do an unknown equation, and you do the equation that shows the answer, and you write out how you figured it out. WOW!!!!
We have done a lot of making 10. We can use a ten frame.
We make number bonds.
We take the smaller numbers and add them up to make the total number or the sum.
