For our language arts, we are working on sounding out 3-sounded words using our Fundations boards. We are also working on which vowel sounds makes that middle sound.
For reading, we are FINALLY working independently in small groups! I have four groups, and we switch after 15-20 minutes! The four groups usually consist of meeting with me, writing longer sentences, computer time and language arts tubs to help focus on our sight words! The students sure have grow TREMENDOUSLY with being able to follow directions, working on the expectations, and growing in their learning!
MathFor math this week, we are working on subtraction, and soon we we will be correlating subtraction and addition strategies to solve problems! The students are becoming PROS!
ScienceFor science, we have finished up our first unit on animals! Together, we are going to fill out an animal report on snakes! We are going to work on reading some non-fiction texts to pull information from and fill it out correctly on our reports! Then, after we have mastered this, we are going to create our own animal reports on an animal of our own choosing! I can't wait to see what animals our students are going to be looking at!
We are still looking at communities and how we can help our community. We are also reading Scholastic news on Thursdays! So ask your son or daughter about the exciting details of this weeks stories!
New This Week
We have a special art guest who will be coming in on Wednesdays. Her name is Ms. Madi, and she is going to school for art therapy! She needs to complete 40-50 hours of volunteer time and she is teaching art to kindergarten, first grade, and second grade! The students are SUPER excited to have her teach art as I have tried to teach art, and let's just say, that is not my strong suit! I do try however!
