In our centers this week we will work on recording what we can see growing on our beans, playing go fish, preparing our Hall of Memories, dice subtraction, and using IPADS.

Fundations

This week we will continue working in Unit 5 in Fundations. In this unit we will work more and more with sentences. This unit introduces a lot of things we have already worked on Reader's Workshop! So it should go smoothly!

Math

This week we will continue working in Module 4.GRADE K MODULE 4: NUMBER PARIS, ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION TO 10

Grade K Module 4: Number Pairs, Addition and Subtraction to 10

Module 4 marks the next exciting step in math for kindergartners, addition and subtraction! They begin to harness their practiced counting abilities, knowledge of the value of numbers, and work with embedded numbers to reason about and solve addition and subtraction expressions and equations. In Topics A and B, decomposition and composition are taught simultaneously using the number bond model so that students begin to understand the relationship between parts and wholes before moving into formal work with addition and subtraction in the rest of the module.


This week we plan to work on Lessons 37-39


Lesson 38- add 1 to numbers 1-9 to see the pattern of the next number using 5-group drawings and equations

Lesson 39- Find the number that makes 10 for numbers 1-9, and record each with a 5-group drawing


We will also play some math games and work on different math activities focusing around addition and subtraction.


Fridays - we will be working on different stem activities
