Learning highlights from the week:
Math- Second graders continued to review their combinations to 10 and today we discussed order while adding 3 or more addends. We will be continuing that discussion next week. First graders learned strategies for adding and solving story problems. Next week first graders will start strategies for subtraction. First graders also have been enjoying this counting by 10’s song (warning… it’s catchy and sticks in your head)
Reading- We continue to build our reading stamina and we're slowly stretching our reading times as well. We learned about using our schema and connecting new information to things we already know. This helps strengthen our comprehension.
Mindfulness - We read Your Fantastic Elastic Brain and learned what our brain does for us! We made brain hats to help us learn more about our brain. We made our classroom expectations: Be Kind, Be Honest, Respect Yourself, Respect Others, Respect Our Classroom and Supplies. We created thumbprint promises to help remind us to follow those expectations.
