Writing and reading
This Is The Way We Go To School was our story of the week this past week. This story was able to help us continue to learn the sight words where & come as well as practice types of transportation. We also learned the amazing words cable car, trolley, horse-and-buggy, skies, metro line, & vaporetto. Verbs and nouns were our primary focus of the week as well as how to write a "How-To Report"; the report we practiced writing this week was how to get a book from a library. We were able to practice the sounds for Y and Q this week and focus on reading and writing words with these two letters.
During math we continued to practice partners of 7, 8, and 9; we were able to do a lot of hands on activities to help us find these partners. Teen numbers has also been a primary focus this week and will be for the rest of the unit. We play a game where we have to cover the zero to create a teen number; this helps us see the equation before hand (10+_=_) and it helps remember that a teen number is created with a group of 10.
the book fair was a success this week! A lot of students were able to get some books :) I hope everyone enjoys them.
