Weekly Wrap Up

We had a full week, but I think it was a lot of fun!
We finished our study about things we see in the sky.We made the phases of the moon - we just stuck to basic phases for our representation, but we did learn about them all in the books we read.
We also learned about stars and constellations. The students designed their own constellation in their journals that came home this week.

We celebrated Valentine's Day as a class, and I really enjoyed our party this year! We passed out cards, played a heart matching game, colored our own game boards, and had an ice cream treat!

We have been working on spelling simple words correctly. I gave the student letter tiles and we worked on building different words. I added some blends into the mix, and the words with ending blends were a good challenge for us!

We have been using objects and pictures to solve addition sentences, and on Friday, I introduced flashcards. Students need to add within 5 with fluency. I would love for them to know each problem automatically, but we learned how to use our fingers if we need to. Flashcards will come home a couple times a week - they should be returned each time so we can practice in class.

I continue to be so impressed by and so proud of this group of kids! They have picked up addition with no problem! We have a few more skills to practice with addition this week before we move on to subtraction.
We are going to learn how to care for teeth this week in science. Enjoy the long weekend - the weather looks beautiful!
