We are now into Unit 4 and continue to focus on teen numbers. Students are getting better and better at recognizing groups of ten and extra ones that are used to make up teen numbers. Another focus of this new unit is partners of ten. Students will get a lot of exposure to the different ways we can add numbers to make ten. We will also continue working on basic addition and subtraction in both equation form, and in the form of math stories or word problems.
Our story of the week was Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It was so fun to read and enjoy this classic story together. We were also able to read a lot of different, silly versions of the story and practice comparing and contrasting.
We had so much fun on Tuesday passing out Valentine's to our friends. Students did a great job practicing their handwriting by writing out their classmates' names on their Valentine's. I loved seeing all the work that went into making them so special. It was also great to see them reading the names and how happy they were to pass them out. We also did a fun Valentine's coloring page that helped us practice our addition and sorted candy hearts.
