This week we worked on writing reviews. We read the story Knuffle Bunny Free. The kids rated the book based on a 5 star system. They wrote a review of the story including a catchy attention getter, strong reasons, and a convincing conclusion.
We continued our final module. We worked on applying our understanding of tens and ones to dimes and pennies. We...
- worked on exchanging pennies and nickels for dimes and quarters.
- counting mixed coins.
- counting on with pennies from a larger coin.
- showing numbers 50-120 with dimes and pennies.
Phonics: We continued working with contractions and compound words this week.
We continued our unit on light and sound communication. We conducted an experiment to reenact a cave to see how light affects your ability to see. We worked with partners and put messages in a dark box that the kids had to try to read. We used flashlights and codes to send messages to a partner. We also learned about how boats use lights and sounds to navigate in the fog.
