our child what does it mean to elaborate in your writing? Who are they writing a letter to?
In literacy we will read the book Mercy Watson Fights Crime. This book is about a pig who wonders downstairs to find some delicious toast but instead finds a cowboy robber in her kitchen. Ask your child to tell you what the theme of the books is, the problem and solution. Every night have your child make a prediction about what they will be reading tomorrow.
-Understand figurative language
-Make and confirm predictions
-Understand cause and effect
In math, the children will use palce value to represent a 2 digit number as tens and ones.
Ask your child:
What strategies can we use to solve this problem? 53+______= 70
If I have 47 stickers, how can I represent this in tens and ones. Use "sticker notation" and write an equation. What number is in the tens place and what number is in the ones palce?
Keep logging those minutes. We can earn a pizza party for being the class with the most minutes. The purpose of read-athon is to get kids EXCITED about reading. If you do not have sponsors, please do not stress. You can still log your reading minutes.
