Weekly Wrap Up

Can you believe this last week was February? The nice weather made for some fun recesses, and we even got to go outside on Friday afternoon for our writing time.

We learned about dental health this week. We talked about good things to do for our teeth, like brushing and flossing, going to the dentist, and eating healthy foods. We did an experiment with hard boiled eggs. The eggs represented our teeth, and we soaked them in coffee and coke. The students made predictions, and most were surprised that the eggs turned totally brown. We talked about the importance of making good choices about what eat and drink.
We wrapped up our math chapter on addition. We will continue to practice our addition facts to 5 - I've been so impressed with how quickly this group has picked up their facts! We took our test on Friday, and I should have scores in the grade book by the end of the weekend. We will be starting subtraction next!

We are almost at the end of the third quarter. I will be starting assessments for grade cards this week. In Science, we are going to learn about sound.
I have been impressed as we have worked with blends. We will continue working on blends, but we are also going to start adding some "hunks and chunks" - these are digraphs - letter pairs that change their sounds to make a new sounds, like ch, sh, and th.
Have a great weekend!
