Class Update

We had another wonderful week working on creating a supportive classroom community! The students and I worked on what their hopes would be for this upcoming school year. After that, we brainstormed expectations for all of us to follow to help support those goals.

Reading: We have started our first unit, Building a Reading Life. So far we have focused on learning what works well for each of us when we read. These things might include noise level, body position, what our minds are focused on, time of day, etc. Next, we reviewed ways to pick "just right" books. Also we began our read aloud, Stone Fox.

Math: This week we began using number grids to solve for differences between numbers. We played a few fun math games. We also used math tools like small clocks and calculators. Healthy homework habits were discussed while completing homework together.  Homework will start to come home this week to be completed with your support and returned to school the next day. One other fun activity we did was creating a birthday graph on the iPads using Seesaw. (We will discuss Seesaw further at Open House). The kids were very excited!
