It was a busy and fun week before break!
We had some last minute things to do to finish up and then some time to celebrate!
We have been doing an awesome job working on different ways to make different numbers. We also talked about breaking down 4 + 7 = 11 into 4 is 2+2 and 7 is 3+4 to make 2+2+3+4=11.
We have been studying how to be super smart about non-fiction books. We added the following tasks to our “reading habits”…
– Stopping and studying each page (words and pictures)
– Chatting about the page or the book (we want them to increase their comprehension as well as expanding and explaining things they learn)
– Make your voice smooth and lively (showed them examples of nature shows and kid president about how they change their voices while speaking)
We have been working super hard on writing non-fiction books we spent some time writing about how to be good students and how we would teach a new student who came to our class.
We also picked an animal we know a lot about so we could teach others.
If possible it would be great to read over some of their old words over break and discuss the spelling pattern and what sound the vowels make.
& Happy New Year!!!!
