With only 18 school days left, we are still working hard!
-Writing – narrative fiction continues
-In math, we finished data and graphs and began word problems (hardest one – missing addends in all positions, addition and subtraction)
-In phonics, we talked about the bossy/evil r. When behind a vowel, it changes the sounds. You can view videos here (they always ask to replay them): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMwCnSSMB-Q&list=PLqk7ar-NaBVvs2CJmSRPrAXmabznPvTA6
-In Social Studies, we finished George Washington Carver. We will begin Ruby Bridges next week (although she came to speak with us last week).
-We were also able to visit the star lab – AWESOME!
-We discussed likes/difference as we learned about exceptional children’s week. Here is the book that we based our discussions from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=989O0O_xc3o&t=3s
We ended the week with a wonderful program teaching us about down syndrome from a student at our school and his family!
