Math- We took an assessment in math this week and will continue taking it next week. This is not an assessment the kids need to prepare for. This assessment is a tool for the teachers to help us decide where to lead our instruction.
Our focus in math next week will be addition and subtraction story problems along with the introduction of money.
Reading- This week I introduced the first of the Daily 5 reading stations which is Read to Self. Next week I will be introducing Work on Writing to the kids. We are also learning some of the CAFE skills which are skills that give the students comprehension, accuracy, fluency, and vocabulary skills to use as they read.
Writing- We worked on brainstorming ideas to write about and next week we are going to be starting writing narrative stories about experiences in our lives. The kids are also going to be adding details to their stories to make them pop out at the reader.
Social Studies- This week we talked about what teamwork is and how to be a good classmate. We will continue these lessons next week.
