## Unit 1- Main Idea and Supporting Details

We will continue to focus on Identifying main Idea and supporting details next week. The main idea is what a paragraph, passage, or story is mostly about. Supporting details describe or explain the main idea. The main idea is often stated at the beginning of a paragraph or book. Recognizing main ideas helps readers remember important information. Recognizing supporting details helps readers understand the main idea.

## Combinations with the Number Rack

In Module 2, the focus is again on addition and subtraction facts. The number rack is used to help students recognize number combinations (primarily to 10), subitize (recognize subsets within a given quantity), find the sum of two numbers, and compare two numbers to find the difference between them.

During Number Corner this week, students had to write as many equations that would equal how many days we'd been in school. Look how many they came up with!! Wow!

Please enjoy the pictures! Students are always so engaged during "work places".
