Peek At The Week

We had another great week!

Thank you to all the parents who brought in things for the Kitchen Gadgets basket! It is looking awesome!

Here's a look at our week....
In Math:
  • Identified and recorded 3-digit numbers in expanded form (200 + 30 + 1), standard form (231), and number word form (two hundred thirty-one)
  • Added and subtracted multiples of 10 or 100 to and from a 3-digit number without regrouping
  • Students found, identified and applied number patterns to numbers on a hundred chart
  • Used skip counting by 5s, 10s, and 100s up to 1,000 -We even skipped around the room! :)
  • Made a place value kite craft
  • Played Close to 20
In Writing:
  • Students edited their continent reports in order to prepare for publishing, focusing on using correct punctuation and spelling
  • Began to transfer their edited work to publishing paper, organizing it under appropriate headings as they go
  • Created pictures with labels and added captions
  • Made an “All About the Author” page too
Many students are finished and they are looking great!
We also interviewed a classmate and wrote descriptive paragraphs about them. We learned a lot!

  • Practiced more words with 2 syllables  in Unit 11 for long e
  • Practiced trick words
  • Took Unit 11 test
  • Groups read some nonfiction about Dolphins and Crocodiles and Lizards. They love learning new information about animals and discussing text features!

Have a wonderful weekend!
