Pratt's Primary Corner

Weekly Update- September 8, 2017

Week at a Glance

Reading- We are falling more and more in love with our read aloud book, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library. We've really been able to make inferences about the characters and what motivates their actions. We also started writing our first letter to Miss Pratt in our readers notebooks. Miss Pratt will begin BAS testing next week.

Math- We did a fun length scavenger hunt this week and also learned how to play some new math games for addition and subtraction. We started number corner and the activities have been so much fun that sometimes we forget we are learning. Today we loved the new game we learned, Spud!

Social Studies- We started a mapping unit this week! We read Me on The Map and talked about all of the special places we live, such as our continent, country, state, town, etc. We created our on Me on a Map flip book. Next week we will begin to look at cardinal directions.

Writing- We loved our 5 senses writing activity this week because we got to eat an Oreo! :) Next week will we start an Opinion Writing unit.
