The candy writing started out very well this afternoon. We will edit the writing draft then work on the final piece. This is the start to introducing paragraph writing.
Be sure to take a peek in our photo album tab. All the Halloween pictures are there. Thanks to Miss. VanHall for being our photographer for the day.
Tomorrow is a spelling test. I will guide them through it since our week was off routine. That will be the same for the grammar check up.
You will see our first math test coming home. I was very happy with the overall class and their understanding of the beginning strategies for addition and subtraction. We went over the test in class and many of the children saw their errors as minor mistakes. This is one of the Keys: Failure Leads to Success. We all learn from our mistakes and I also told the class that no matter what the markings are, we can continue to practice and get better.
Our next math concept will be place value, working with comparing numbers, and recognizing coins with their values. Plus, starting to add money. If you want to send in some coins again, please feel free. They did very well with pennies and dimes. Now we can use all types of coins. This can wait until Monday or Wednesday of next week.
Just a reminder, we do not have school next Tuesday due the elections.
Enjoy the evening.
