The children were introduced to using a dictionary today. You can see a paper coming home that we worked on in class. They needed to find two of our spelling words in the dictionary. We used guide words, alphabetical order skills, found how to pronounce the words, what part of speech they were, and what the meaning of the word was. Then, they were asked to draw a picture of the meaning and use the word correctly in a sentence. This will become a part of our weekly work in spelling.
We worked on two different strategies on adding two digit numbers. One is drawing a picture with place value and making groups of tens. The other a shorter way to visualize the regrouping. Unit 2, lesson 9 is coming home tonight (some did it yesterday). We will continue to work on these.
Have a great night!
