What did we learn this week?

Reading: We read some non fiction stories about reindeer and did some research on what reindeer look like, what they eat, and where they live.

Writing: Students continued using their first editing strategy called "dot and say." They continued to use the "Who, Did What, and When" in their sentences.

Phonics: We learned the poem "5 Little Reindeer" and the students found rhyming and HFW. (said, me) We continued to work on Consonant, Vowel, Consonant words (CVC words). We learned the -ing family in our poetry.

Math: We began working on "teen" numbers this week. We talked about how a 'teen" number is 10 + ___ to equal the number. We also practiced writing our "teen" numbers.
