Math

This week, we...


  • We completed "Bird on Wires" Math Problems (different ways 10 birds can land on 2 wires).
  • Playing a race car game to practice decomposing numbers and finding a missing part of 10.
  • Children solved number stories with calculators.
  • Students compared numbers and place them in order from smallest (least) to largest (greatest).

Writer's Workshop

We have been writing "research books" about animals on a farm, writing about what they look like, what they eat, where they live, and an interesting fact.

Reader's Workshop

We have been practicing comprehension while reading. Try asking these reading questions at home!

· Who where the characters?

· What was the setting? Did the setting change throughout the story or stay the same?

· What was the Plot? (Major events)

· What happened at the beginning?

· What happened in the middle?

· What happened at the end?

· What was the main problem?

· What was the solution?

· Did you like the story? Why?

· What was your favorite part?

Fundations

We continued practicing reading and writing our first digraph: SH!
