Here is a recap of what we did last week:
-In writing – we talked about small moment writing and what that means. It is zooming from your whole narrative story and writing details about one part. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1UctktEyds&index=9&list=PLqk7ar-NaBVuIFUuQYPXcFRlp9TExq8kS
-In math, we finished dimes and pennies and started learning addition and subtraction strategies. Ask your child to name at least three strategies that we have talked about so far. We will continue addition and subtraction to 10 this week, as well as talking about and comparing length.
Here are the videos we saw using dimes and pennies (7 videos): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9I7TZN3mq0s&list=PLqk7ar-NaBVuZmve4bLFtxbX5OLdl7C3l
-In phonics, we finished s family blends (sw, st, sn, sk, sm, sl, sc, sp) and final s family blends – words that end with st, sk, sp.

-In reading, we finished our last week of talking about main idea.
-In Social Studies, we finished our studies of maps/globes/continents/oceans (for now…we will learn more throughout the year).
