reading and writing
This past week our story was Mayday! Mayday! A Coast Guard Rescue. This story helped us understand cause and effect and it taught us the amazing words rescue, pilot, yacht, sailor, mechanic, & shimmering. We focused on the letter X this week so we practiced a lot of words that ended with X. Our sight words were still green, blue, & yellow. Questions were also one of the big ideas this week. We practiced and talked about always including a question mark at the end of a question and how questions sometimes begin with what, when, where, why, or how.
In math we started doing a lot of reviewing since our unit is almost done. We are still practicing adding and subtracting, doing our math drawings to help us, and identifying 3 dimensional shapes. Tiny tumblers are also another strategy we've been using to help us identify the total and the partners; which the students enjoy.
This next week
