Last two weeks....

I am sorry I didn't send a newsletter last weekend, so I am catching up now...I opened the iPad and realized that I had taken 220 pictures to document our last two weeks :) we have been busy!

We had 2-2 day and we loved thinking of many ways to see 2, we had Global Day of Play 3 hours of just playtime was great to help us build relationships and just having fun, we made pillows with Samantha's mom to answer some of our wondering, we had makerpace in the Library, Miss C. taught a lesson on measurements, we celebrated reaching a 20 minute read to self goal by bringing pillow and blankets, we practiced our program for next week....

In math we are really working hard on creating great number stories to connect math to our everyday life....we have started talking about multiplications and doubles as repeated addition and division as examples of equal sharing, BIG STUFF

We are continuing to teach each other about things we are experts in with our How To writing unit, ask your child what they have been writing about. We are also focusing on rereading our writing and fixing up words that we now know how to read and write.

We are continuing to learn about tortoises and answering some of our wondering.
