In Language Arts, we started working on blends, like sl and sp. That means the words we read will have 4 sounds in our words instead of just 3. We also had 5 new sight words. On Friday, we played a game in teams with flyswatters. The goal was to be the first to swat the sight word. We kept score on the Smart Board. One of the kids told another "give it your best shot!"Some of these are blurry - they move too fast!
In Math, we started working on length. We compared classroom items to a pencil and made a shorter and longer pile. Then, we compared 4 items and ordered them by length. We used classroom items first, then used some strips of paper.
For Social Studies next week, we will begin to look at maps.
