Many students LOVED the Hour of Code that we did last Friday. If your student wants to continue coding at home, here's the website: Hour of Code
The students also had a blast creating a sled using the materials and constraints we provided them. We were all pleased with how well the students worked together and listen to their group members' ideas before create a collaborative sled. Thank you so much for all those who donated items for this activity.
Reading: Our shared reading mini-lessons will focus on using apostrophes correctly with a focus on contractions
Writing: The students are continuing to finalize and type their pages for their informational books. We look to having the parents come in and having the students share their books. We will be sending home invitations once we have a date set in stone.
Math: We will be focusing on addition strategies to help the students become more fluent with their addition facts. The strategies we will be using are making ten, doubles, and doubles plus one. This should help prevent the students from as many careless mistakes when we move into addition with regrouping.
Social Studies: We will be learning about Martin Luther King, Jr. and his contributions. The students will be completing a rotation each day with a specific task that needs to be completed. This will require the students to take more responsibility for their learning and do so in a fun way.
