Week Of March 8th
Highlights from last week....
This week was a busy week of learning.
In ELA, we learned about weather. Our sight words were little and was. We also completed our Unit 6 Wonders assessment. We are moving right along.
As a team, we are noticing that many of our children are struggling with their sight words, please continue to practice these at home with your child.
In Math, we worked on composing and decomposing numbers.
