I am so thankful for each of my wonderful students and all of you parents! I’m wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving Break! Here’s what we’ve been working on this week in EIP:
First Grade Math
We’ve been using bar manipulatives to model addition and subtraction problems 0-20. We have also been working on writing number sentences (equations) to help us solve for the missing number in a number bond model!
Second Grade Reading
In reading, we’ve continued to work on spelling and decoding words that follow the Magic E Rule! We even made Thanksgiving Magic E turkeys! Don’t forget about the weekly Fluency Practice that is coming home as homework each week! These practice sheets will really help solidify the work we are doing in class!
Second Grade Math
We have continued to work on using an Orton-Gillingham approach for math computation, while working to solve 2-digit addition and subtraction problems. I have seen many students progress with these difficult skills, through use of the multi-sensory approach. Students love getting their hands on the math bars to “build” their problem, before trying to draw and solve it!
Fourth Grade Math
We have finished up multiplying using the area models with the math integer bars. We have started to learn about multiplicative comparisons, which are helping us to break down the language used in many multiplication word problems. We will continue to practice this through the end of the week!
