Here are the new words.
We are continuing our double digit addition. This week we have been learning breaking apart with addition and subtraction. They have to be able to add the tens first, then the ones, last they add the answers together.
Writing- We will be taking our assessment on opinion writing Tuesday. Then we will be starting our poetry unit!! Just in time for Valentine's Day:)
Next week is the Change a Life Money Wars- This is a little bit of information about it. The kids will bring in money and it is a competition between grade levels. This is the breakdown of what each coin means point wise.
- Pennies = +1 point
- Paper money(dollar bills etc.) = +100 pts., +500 pts. etc.
- Silver money is NEGATIVE!! Dimes, nickles, quarters subtract from your total!
- What might happen is others will "sabotage" your total by putting silver coins in your banks. We get to put the silver coins in Mrs. Carter or Mrs. Whisler's bank to take away their points.
- The classrooms at each grade level with the most points at the end of the week will get a Dance Party in the gym!!!! This is going to be so much fun!!!!
