Unit 2 Week 1 in the Wonders Program will focus on "Why is working together a good way to solve a problem?" We will be also looking the comprehension strategy of making predictions and comprehension skill of theme. The first two weeks we will be looking at similes and antonyms as the vocabulary skill.
The following will be covered in Unit 3 this week:
- finding the rule of "What's my Rule?" tables
- estimating and use partial-sums/column addition to solve problems
Since the students had two BIG assessments on Friday, I introduced the students to Reflex Math. Several students used this program in 2nd grade when it was being piloted. Webster has decided to purchase a building site package. A letter was sent home on Friday sharing the details about this math fact fluency program. The students were totally pumped to FINALLY begin. We will "try" to get on Reflex Math three times a week, like the program suggests. If your child has screen time at home, that would be wonderful. There is a FREE app that can be downloaded to allow students to play on an iPad or iPod.
