Reading

Unit 7- Using Inferences to Make Predictions

We will continue Unit 7 into next week. Readers make educated guesses, or predictions, about what will happen next in a story by using clues (fiction) and evidence (nonfiction) and what they know. Making predictions helps readers make sense of a text and build interest as they read. Making predictions encourages readers to keep reading to find out if what they think, or predict, will happen does happen.

Math

Unit 6- Story Problems for Basic Addition & Subtraction

Unit 6, with its dual focus on penguins and fact strategies to 20, opens with a review of the ten-frame and double ten-frame, presented in the form of penguins standing on ice ledges. Students count and write addition statements to represent the penguins, using 5 and 10 as landmark numbers. This activity segues into a flash and write game with the Double Ten-Frame Five-Wise Display Cards.
