We are off and running! I have kind of forgotten about my blog because Class DOJO is so easy to post on. :) I hope that it is okay to just communicate mostly on that sight. I will update this blog about once every other week.
In Math, we have gotten in to our new math curriculum and are almost finished with Topic 1. We have learned about the number Zero and how it means NONE. We learned about numbers 1-5 and how to make 5 today. If you notice that the math pages are half done it is because we do most of it together on the Smartboard before doing the Independent work by ourselves. Remember the homework pages are just for your help at home, I do not need these back. :) We will be taking a short assessment over Topic 1 next week so if you would like to help your kiddo practice those pages would be great!
In Reading, we have started our Daily 5 "Read to Self" portion (there are 5 parts that they will learn how to do independently). Ask your child what is expected during Read to Self. We are also doing great with our Letter Experts. Next up is Kinsley, Payton and Jacob next week!
In Writing, we have been learning what a writer does and how drawing on paper is telling a story. Next, week we will be diving right into Choosing a topic, so if you have not returned your child's paper for topics please do so Tuesday. We are doing great learning how to add details to their work. We also started our share time.
