Oh my goodness, 5 students were away today due to illness. I hope that everyone is feeling better and for the rest of us we need to stay healthy. Lots of washing of hands is in order.
This morning we worked on our Art and writing project. This week the writing focus is adding descriptive language to the basic sentences that were written last week. We identified the nouns in the sentences and then added 2 adjectives for each. We also showed them how to use a thesaurus to find descriptive words.
For math, the focus has now shifted to subtraction. The class did 5 minutes of basic facts and then they had a pre-test of 2 and 3 digit subtraction with and without regrouping. A small group know how to regroup so this will set the direction for our math instruction for the next couple of weeks. At home it is a suggestion to work on subtraction facts. Mathletics is a great resource for this. Thank you to parent council for paying to have our subscription renewed.
The students continued to work on their animal research. This week they are turning their facts into complete sentences and developing a paragraph with those sentences.
