Before we get into this week, I wanted to share a little peek at our week before Spring break. We had a special in-school field trip on the Kohl's StoryBus. The students heard the story "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" and then were able to act out and play different parts of the story. We also got excited about starting our new story, The Wizard of Oz.
Next week, we will start digging into character traits by doing a character study and writing piece for each of the four main characters.
We kicked off our addition unit by adding the number of syllables in our names with a partner. We did this with letters in our names as well. We then learned addition vocabulary we would need to solve problems such as plus sign, equal sign, and equations. We spent the week practicing solving addition problems in 3 different ways: on our fingers, with a 10 frame, and unifix cubes.
