Don't forget - no school Monday, Oct. 10 and Wednesday, Oct. 12!
Here's what we were working on in the classroom last week :
Reading : The students got their reading partners last week! We went over how to sit with a reading partner and different ways to read together. Ask your child who his/her reading partner is.
Writing : Last week, the students started using the writing folders you helped decorate at home and learned all about how to use their folders to spark writing ideas. We also went over writing across the pages, rather than telling a story all on one page.
Math : We started our second math unit this week. The students played a math game called Roll and Total to practice the addition strategy of counting on. We also started investigating ten frames and pairs of numbers that go together to make ten.
Computers : The students used Typing Club for the first time last week. This is a program that will help the students develop correct typing skills and stamina as typers.
