Short Week 10 in G1!

This week in reading students reviewed the good habits readers have when reading to self, reading to someone, and solving hard words.

During writing we began revising our best writing piece by rereading to make sure it makes sense and by adding even more details to bring the story to life.

In math we practiced using a number line and 100 grid to solve different types of addition and subtraction problems. We also learned how to use frames-and-arrows diagrams, filling in frames to follow a counting pattern or figuring out a rule to match a set of frames. Next week, we will wrap-up Unit 3 and students will take the assessment. Practicing the highlighted strands on IXL can help your child prepare.

Students finished revising their family artifact stories on their own and with a partner in social studies. Next week we will record each student’s story on our iPads.

Students will practice the same sort next week when they return from Tihar break. New sorts will come home again Monday 10/30.

I sent home 3 Home Links math pages in your child’s folder to complete if you have time over the break. Please also be sure your student spends some time reading!
