Learning Lately- Last week (oops!)

I guess I forgot to hit publish last week?!

Reading: We interrupted our nonfiction unit to read Kevin Henkes books for reading week! We enjoyed lots of funny stories! We continued our work with letter sounds, especially long and short vowel sounds. The kids are getting good at using the sounds they know to read and spell words! We continue to work on memorizing sight words as well!

Writing: We worked together to write about plastic. We worked on choosing a nonfiction topic, writing a heading, drawing a realistic picture and labeling. We are working on forming sentences that tell 3 facts about our topic.

Math: We focused on subtraction this week and used number stories to understand the meanings of the minus symbol. We played math games to practice

Science/Social Studies: We began our Living and Nonliving unit by learning about what animals need to live. We enjoyed a Mystery Science video about Pluto.
