We read the story, A House is a House for Me. The book describes houses for things that you don't necessarily think about. Our learning point made us think about our background knowledge to help us better understand thinking about houses in a different way. We looked for compound words in the story and we found 20 of them.
Math has been all about reviewing some concepts from first grade. We worked on changing the order of the addends in an addition equation, doubles, near doubles, doubles plus two, and using a tens frame. I also showed everyone hoe to do "touch math"m which helps you add numbers easier. Keep practicing addition facts for quicker recall doing math problems.
