Parent/Teacher Conferences- If you have not signed up for a parent/teacher conference yet, I will be sending you times and days that are available so we can meet and discuss your child's progress.
Math-This week we practiced story word problems and place value up to the tens place. I would have them show me in tens and ones (with blocks) a number like 42 and then ask them to tell me how many they would have left if they took away 29. I loved hearing their conversations as they were trying to figure this out. The were all so focused and excited to tell how they discovered what the answer is. Next week our focus will be on place value to the hundreds place.
Reading-I am assessing the students' reading levels next week.
Writing- Next week we will be taking our narrative writing assessment and then we will be starting our informative writing. This is where they become experts on a topic and in their writing teach others about that topic.
Social Studies- We are going to be learning about maps and making a map with a key and a title next week.
Word Work Words- The new words for next week are :
why, tell, here, saw, come
