Last week we learned how to add and subtract 0,1 & 2 to/from a number. This week we are practicing our doubled facts (1+1, 2+2, 3+3...) to help us add and subtract mentally.
This week we are talking about our "Schema". Schema is what you already know or what you have experienced. We can use our schema to make connections to the texts. This week we practiced making connections to 2 text-Owen and Ira Sleeps Over. When we use our schema to make connections we build on our story comprehension.
This week we acted as scientist as we observed the day and night sky. We used time lapse videos to help us with our observations as well. We also learned what causes day and night (the Earths rotation). Next week we will talk about the moon!
This week we finished introducing the rest of vowel town (R apartment). We also learned all of the vowel spellings on vowel town. We will continue to work o. Saying vowel town and we will begin practicing vowel spelling.
We ended our week with a class meeting. The students were able to come up with all kinds of things our class has done well on this week (learning our doubles, writing ideas, making connections, being kind....). The. We talked about things we can work on- lining up and talking. Then we ended with giving a neighbor a compliment. They melt my heart!
