A Fun Week

We had a busy week after returning from vacation! In Math, we've been working on place value with hundreds, tens, and ones. We've learned new games too! In Fundations, we're working on the 6 sounds of e. In Social Studies/Writing, we're researching North America to create a class book.

Also, we celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday with a special guest reader and we learned a lot about Dr. Seuss's life too through Scholastic and a Kahoot game. Our guest read Fox in Socks and I read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. 

The students also learned some exciting news about their teacher! :)
