WHAT'S HAPPENING

Math: This week we began Topic 11: Subtracting with Tens and Ones. We have focused on subtracting groups of tens with and without a 100 chart. Thanks for continuing to help your student by encouraging them to do their homework on Tuesdays &Thursdays!


Reader's Workshop: This week we studied parts of words by learning about prefixes and suffixes. Students searched in their books for examples and we found a LOT!


Writer's Workshop: This week we are finishing up our nonfiction writing unit. We worked on our pictures and tried to add diagrams to our writing.


Social Studies: This week we studied George Washington, Abraham Lincoln & Barack Obama. We read and made books about these important Presidents!

LEADERS IN ROOM 108

This week our class was honored with announcing our mission statement on Mission Statement Monday. Every week a different classroom is highlighted and some students get to read their class mission statement on the announcements. Way to go Harper, Mary, Max & Nathan! We are so proud of you for being brave!
