Reading- Lots of review and practice this week. We are working so hard to apply all the basics of reading to read independently. We also used some of our reading time to learn about Iceland. Each class in the school is learning about a country and we chose Iceland.
Writing-We learned different ways to tell our opinions such as “I like” or “My favorite”. We are working on telling 3 reasons to support our opinions. We are practicing spelling all sight words correctly, using word spaces, using capitalization and punctuation, and tapping to spell unknown words.
Math- We continued our work with addition, subtraction and seeing relationships between numbers. Math games like roll and record as well as making bracelets with different bead combinations were fun ways to practice these skills. We also applied our sorting and counting skills to count our money from the penny drive!
Science/Social studies- Our cool tool this week was about ways to manage stress. We learned about space, storm water and Iceland! What a random, yet interesting combination!
