In Reading, we have begun the "ot" and "ox" word family. We are also reviewing the sight words, "the" and "said." Students are working on stretching out words that they want to write and trying to spell new words on their own. They have been extremely excited about spelling new words and have been writing notes to each other. It is very cute to see all these little writers at work.
Today, we counted the poems in our Poetry Journal. We are up to 26 poems. They were so proud of themselves as they realized how far they had come since the beginning of the year. Wow!!! What SUPER READERS!!!
Our school has begun a new reading program for February. Each class will be taking time during the day to read. Our class has decided that we are going to tally how many minutes we read together, independently, and read a-louds with adults. Our goal is to build our independent reading stamina. Today, we read 25 minutes because we were a little busy making Valentines!!!
Right now in Math, we are covering a little bit of everything and reviewing. We will start on writing and identifying numbers 22-30, estimation, story problems with addition and subtraction and measuring... like I said- a little of everything!
Hope you all have a great Valentine's Day!
