“In the Domino math center, we add and subtract.” –Malak
In language arts this week, we did the reader’s theater “Hickory, Dickory, Dock.” We practiced reading with fluency and expression. We are also starting to write informational reports from non-fiction texts we read. In math, we concentrated on coin money. For the next test, they will need to be able to add sets of coins together (pennies, nickels, and dimes.) It would be great if you could please give them groups of 4-5 coins (focusing on mixing pennies with nickels, and pennies with dimes) at home as practice. We are beginning a social studies unit on American symbols.
If you have not already sent in the permission slip to eat green eggs and ham, please do so ASAP.
