We had another action packed week before the break!
-In writing, we continued information writing. We are working on adding and planning with a table of contents.
-In math, we worked on adding and subtracting numbers to 20. We really focused on all our math strategies, especially “near doubles/doubles plus 1.” Please review this strategy with your child and become familiar with it to help support them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7-hnKA0ALE&list=PLqk7ar-NaBVuaHarwRN25_zWnKdjwQzAX
-In phonics, we finished learning about when to use the c or the k at the beginning of a word that starts with the /k/ sound. You can review here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUFA3tywNJ4&list=PLqk7ar-NaBVupDk6xUD3pyEGpFz3lYJow
We also started learning about syllables and will continue that after the break.
-In Social Studies, we began talking about Benjamin Franklin.
-We were able to have Mrs. Rickman visit us with a guidance lesson.
-We also had our STEM day yesterday and continued today. We read the book “Balloons over Broadway” which is based on a true story. It is about a man named Tony, who began designing things as a young boy. He loved making puppets and was asked to make a window display by Macy’s, which then led to making balloons for the Macy’s Day parade. So, as a class we took on the challenge of creating a puppet (like Tony) that looks like an animal and has at least one moving part. The students really enjoyed it and did great! We were able to then participate in a Puppet Parade through our school! Thanks to everyone who was able to send in some donations for the project…we put them to good use! 🙂
I hope that you all have a most wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!!!
