Weekly Wrap Up

We spent this week learning about dental health. We learned how to take care of our teeth, what to avoid, and even learned about animal teeth! Thanks to Colgate, each student should have brought home a toothbrush on Friday.

We wrapped up our chapter on addition, but we will continue to work on addition throughout the rest of the school year. The flashcards will come home a couple nights a week to give you a way to practice with your student. We did some partner practice with ways to make 10 - using double sided counters, they dumped out the cup and wrote number sentences for their results.
We started subtraction on Friday using objects. The transition from addition to subtraction can be tricky, so I'm hoping using concrete examples will help with this! We used monkeys that were climbing down trees to show that we were taking away.

Next week, we are learning about community helpers and will do a research project together on a helper we choose as a class. We will continue to work on subtraction, and we are almost completely through the alphabet with letters we are working on.
Have a great rest of the weekend!
