This week, students used base ten blocks to model adding two digit numbers. We used tens and ones to familiarize with the word "regrouping"- formerly know to the world as "carrying". We also worked on words with the ai and ay spelling. In reading, we practiced sequencing the main events of a text. The big news of the week is that we've begun to learn cursive! This week we learned to make the letters i, t, u, and w! How fun!
Story problems can be tough, but we're working on strategies to identify important information to help us solve even the most challenging problems!
A pic from last week! Previously we worked on blends. Last Friday, we worked on making words with blends with our "blended" smoothie drink! A tasty way to end a week-long spelling unit!
