We had another productive week of learning! Our story of the week was Abuela. It is one of my favorite stories so far because of all the Spanish words that are used in the text. It was fun listening to students share the Spanish words they knew. Our amazing words for the week were: city, airport, harbor, abuela, adventure and flock.
In math we continued work with 10 partners, addition and subtraction and lots of math stories. Students are getting quicker at identifying whether or not a math story calls for addition or subtraction and they are doing a really nice job writing out equations.
We had fun dressing up on our spirit days this week. I love seeing students participate in the fun. I also checked reading calendars on Friday. I plan to do that every Friday to see if students have met their 75 minute weekly goal. Those students who do will get a new bracelet each week. If your child didn't meet their goal for the first week, they can still work towards their goal for the rest of the month.
Also, just a reminder that conferences start this week Thursday. Thank you to everyone who has sent their confirmation slips back. I look forward to meeting with you!
