Weekly Wrap Up

We finally made it through a week - kind of! We worked really hard to get grade card assessments done in the times that we were there. You should see grade cards on Wednesday.

In Math, we have been working on decomposing numbers. This means we have been breaking numbers apart into groups. This is a foundational skill for addition, which we will be starting next.We have been using objects and pictures to help us decompose - but the kids are starting to get some down without objects!

In Reading, we have been working on retelling stories with as many events as possible and the characters. We read Rooster's Off to See the World by Eric Carle this week, and used the pictures from the book to make a map with the characters to help us retell.

We talked about Martin Luther King Jr. and talking about treating everyone with kindness. We read the book The Crayon Box that Talked, and made a list of ways to be a good friend. Then we made our own crayons to celebrate that we are all unique.

We read about Martin Luther King Jr. and then drew him with step by step directions. We all did our best - teacher included - ha!

Next week, we are going to be taking the i-Ready Diagnostic Assessments for both Reading and Math. This gives us a mid year check point to see growth and to give me information about where we need to focus. I'm excited to see how much they've grown this year, and will share the results with you when I have them.
