Weekly Update

Week 10 Update

Our Learning

LITERACY: In Reading Workshop students practiced pointing to and reading words they know, rereading to sound more like the book, and adding to their “snap word” bank.  I’ll share more information about snap words (also known as sight words or high-frequency words) at conferences.  In Writing Workshop students finished “fancying up” one of their stories by adding color and a book cover.  You’ll get to see this final piece at our conference.  🙂

MATH:  This week students learned to show one more and one less than a given number.  This would be a fun game to play at home or in the car!  We also worked on a turkey number project for the hallway.  Students chose a target number (6, 7, or 8), then broke it apart to show the hidden partners.  Be sure to check out the special project at conferences!
