I hope everyone who is participating in Halloween activities this evening has an amazing, safe time! We had a great week at school this week and these kids definitely deserve a little fun this weekend! This week the kids really pushed themselves in math! We had a blast learning about fact families. I gave groups of students three numbers and had them make all the possible fact families with their group. It is always great to get the kids up and moving! Here is a picture I captured of one group.
Here is another cute picture I just have to share! I love leopard and leopard print so I had to get a picture of all this leopard cuteness! Our story in reading for next week is also called "How Leopard Got His Spots." Are you seeing a theme here? :)
Reading: Our phonics skill will be digraph ch. Our focus skill will be sequencing events from the story. We will be emphasizing the vocabulary words: sequence, order and summary.
Math: This week we will be learning about missing addends, and how to solve for the missing number.
Writing: This week on Tuesday we will be having our district writing assessment. The students will be given a prompt to write about. The possible prompts with either be personal narrative, opinion narrative, or informative/expository. On Monday we will review the different types of writing and will have a practice run! The rest of the week we will writing an informative narrative about artists.
Science: Even though Halloween is over we have a few more things to finish up for our spider unit!
Grammar: We will continue working on proper nouns. I will also be introducing commands.
**Monday is picture day. We did not do a class photo on the original picture day so we will be doing one on Monday. It is also retake day for anyone who wanted to retake their individual picture.
Have a great weekend!
