Today in math, we used number lines to help us add and subtract. In word study we looked at sentence strips and determined what was a complete sentence and what was an incomplete sentence.
Today 2C practiced working in their math stations. We are working on patterns, fact families and adding and subtracting on the number line.
2C also began their study of our rotting log. Students made their first observation of one of the creatures (a millipede) in the rotting log. In Spanish, 2C students continued their conversational Spanish with Profe.
2C students began our study of nutrition today. We read Gregory, The Terrible Eater by Mitchell Sharmat. We made a poster of Healthy Foods and Not So Healthy Foods.
We used our notes from our discussion of the 2C C.A.R.E.S. (Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy and Self-Control) and made drawings to represent each word and how students show how they cooperate, assert, be responsible, be empathetic and use self control. Then we made a class contract of rules we promise to abide by for the school year.
We started reading Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry during our snack time read aloud.
In math we started our study of using counting strategies to solve addition and subtraction problems. Today we looked at growing patterns and repeating patterns.
