Hi Families,
This week, we continued our work with reading, sight words, math (adding and subtracting), and balls and ramps in addition to working on story elements after reading various versions of the gingerbread man, baby, girl, and boy. We have designed gingerbread people and created a scene from the book A Snowy Day. The students will be brining home a snowman can with 2 die inside and math dice games to play over our time away from school. I hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing and safe break.

Best,
Jen

"A pretty picture for you to view. Can you find all the U's?"

We discussed words that have the letter U in them. Each student selected a word, chose to have their art portrait or landscape, and drew a large outline for their word with a Sharpie. Then, they colored in their picture with oil pastels. Finally, they used friction (Our current science unit integrated well.) to roll out the letter U's with modeling clay. The U's were hidden in their picture.

I took pictures of their art and displayed them for their peers to see. Each child went to the board, counted their U's and identified how many tens and ones were in their number (Our current math unit integrated wonderfully too!). They shared this number and the amount of tens and ones …
