Friday Smiles

Sorry for the delay in posting our smiles for the week….there were some technical difficulties!

I hope that everyone is able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful day we are having today.

Here is what made us smile this week:

April 24– doing a health experiment with eggs (Derek)

April 25– playing the game Islands in music (Ana)

April 26– doing activities for Earth Day (Brennan)

April 27– helping the Earth by cleaning up garbage (Keaton)

April 28– finishing our Earth Day art (Callie)

It has been another busy week in 2T. We started learning a new math strategy called “Friendly Number“. I will post a video soon on Fresh Grade explaining the strategy. This week we will begin to add 3 numbers- that is tricky!

We also started talking about the comprehension strategy of Transforming. That is why I was wearing the Transformers mask the other day. Good readers “transform” their thinking while they read.This week we set a new stamina record during our Reading Workshop time, we can read for 34 minutes! Tomorrow we are going to begin to talk about the differences between fiction and non-fiction texts. We will also begin talking about non-fiction text features and how they help us understand what we read.

Please remember to go to the Healthy Hunger website and order your pizza!

I can hardly believe that tomorrow is May- where has the time gone? May newsletters were sent home on Friday and Field Trip permission forms will come home tomorrow. Please sign and return the permission forms asap. 🙂

Enjoy your Sunday!
