We had a busy week this week! The temperatures are getting colder, so please send gloves, hats, and a warm coat every day for our 45 minutes of recess.
In Math, we are working on decomposing numbers. This means we are breaking numbers apart into two groups. For example, 4 can be taken apart into a group of 1 and 3 or 2 and 2. We took a quiz on Friday and they did great! We have another week yet with larger numbers, but I've been very impressed! This lays the foundations for addition and subtraction, which we will be starting next. We played a game with a partner to show ways to make 10 with double sided counters.
We are always looking for ways to practice sight words. One of our favorite way is Whack a Word. The students all have the letters and a hammer, and practice spelling our sight words for each week.
Always feel free to ask any questions you have! Have a great weekend!
