New spelling words did not get into mailboxes today. Our mail captains will get them out tomorrow. If you want to see the words for this week, go ahead and login to the connected.com from this site and you will be able to practice them tonight. With our new words this week, we also will be practicing dictionary skills. I introduced the dictionary today to the students. They loved this introduction today. Later this week they will be looking up more words to understand the definitions.
This afternoon, our math stations were full of fun! They played a math addition game where they needed to take turns to be the checker/teacher using the number line strategy. Working with a partner, they looked at addition sentences and using a balance, they changed the addends. With me, they used their knowledge of place value and did some double digit addition with regrouping. They are getting a good handle on this skill.
Your Scholastic Book Club came home last week. In the note, I mentioned that the orders will be due this Friday, December 8. I'd like to move that date up to Wednesday, the 6th. I really want to be sure that the books are back in time before the Holiday break. Thank you for understanding.
Enjoy the evening!
