Weekly Update

Week 24 Update

Our Learning

LITERACY:  In Reading Workshop we continued our unit on Informational Books.  Students learned to read the title and look at pictures to help get their brains ready to read.  We also learned to think about our schema (what we already know about the topic) to predict what the book might be about.  In Writing Workshop we continued our unit on Small Moments.  We worked on adding more detail into our writing to help the reader better understand our story.  Students worked hard on including character emotions, dialogue, and more visual details into their words.

MATH:  This week we began our unit on Number Pairs (Addition & Subtraction to 10).  Students modeled composition and decomposition of numbers to 5 using actions, objects, drawings, fingers, linking cubes, and number bonds.
