Morning Journal: If you could have a conversation with George Washington, what would you talk to him about and why?
Morning Math: Place Value, greater than and less than, telling time to the minute, subtraction with regrouping, addition with regrouping, patterns.
Math: Missing numbers with patterns and in/out boxes. I also introduced using a t-chart in growth patterns. We create t-charts because some of the patterns ask for the tenth number in the pattern or the fifth number in a pattern and a t-chart allows them to create an organized list.
Imagine It: We read "The House on Maple Street" and applied visualizing and adjusting reading speed strategies. This is also a great story for sequencing, because it goes through a community and how it changes over 200 years. I am going to have the students bring home their books tomorrow, so they can read the story at home.
SS: An urban community is one that has a lot of buildings and people in a small compact space (ex. Charlotte), suburban community is a neighborhood with many houses, but you have more space to move around and places to play (ex. Pineville), rural is a community with the houses spread miles apart and has farm land and not many buildings.
Reminder: Snacks are supposed to be healthy. This is just something small that should help to keep your child full until we eat lunch at 12:50. Please do not allow them to bring candy, cookies, cupcakes, or any other sweets for snacks. The only drink allowed in the classroom is water!! If they want to bring juice for lunch, it must be kept in their book bag or lunch box.
