Reading

January Book Club is scheduled for January 22 at lunch time. This month's selection is The Bravest Dog Ever by Natalie Standiford. It is a historical fiction about the story of Balto, a sled dog in Alaska. Students wanting to participate in this book club will need to have the book read before January 22. Reading the book also counts toward January Book It requirements. This month's student moderators are Mikey, Ayla and Jayden.

Math

What a busy week we have had in math! Students began the week learning how to subtract 10 from a 2-digit number using mental math. Next, students practiced measuring and drawing line segments to the nearest half-inch. On Wednesday, ordering numbers using Base Ten Blocks was our focus. After the fact assessment on Thursday, students reviewed subtracting 3 facts. Friday is our written assessment and students will learn to identify gallon, half-gallon, quart and liter containers.
