Reading At Home Challenge- Our reading at home challenge is going well! We are almost up to 20 hours! Please help us out by having your child read at home and color in the pumpkin on the Reading Sheet. Remember you can make your own if you can’t print the form.
Learning highlights from the week:
Math- First grade students have been working on combinations of a number. For example, 5 is made up of 1+4, 2+3, 3+2 and 4+1. In addition they are learning how to look for friendly numbers when adding 3 numerals. For example 2+ 8+ 5, students would look for the 10’s fact first. Second graders have been working on word problems and today we started missing addend problems to 100. For example: 65 + _______ = 100
Reading- We continue to work hard on blending and segmenting words, and reading and spelling sight words. Book box reading and book clubs continue.
Writing-Our focus for the next several weeks will be on handwriting; forming our letters correctly and using lines and spaces correctly.
Social Studies- We started our world travel unit this week. Students learned basic map facts like the 7 continents, 5 oceans and basic cardinal directions. In addition we applied for our passports. This helped us learn our home addresses. Our first flight will be to India on Monday as long as our passports arrive on time!
