We are off to another great week of learning in the classroom. This week we are starting a brand new Unit. The kiddos are excited to be learning about animals.
Our Essential Question is " How do animals survive?"
Comprehension Strategy : Make / revise predictions
Comprehension Skill: Character / Setting / Plot (Beginning, middle, end events)
We are currently working on studying pumpkins. We will be writing an informational piece on pumpkins using Topic Sentences, details, explanations, and closing sentences. Right now we are working hard to remember topic and closing sentences, although some are ready to begin adding more explanations and details.
In math, please practice fact fluency at home. I did send home Xtra Math log in for home. They can log in on a computer, but you can also buy the app. If they want to go to Safari and go to the website, that will work too (and you don't have to pay).
We are continuing working on place value and how the location of a digit tells you its value. We have been using place value to help us add 10 more, 100 more, 10 less, and 100 less.
