One of the amazing small moments stories we've been publishing lately!
Word Work ;)
This is the face you make when you've finished reading your FIRST chapter book.
Math The Chapter two math homework (optional) packets will be coming home this week. We are focusing on all the different forms we can show three digit numbers and what each digit is worth. We're also learning some new math games! I've begun assessing the Sailors to see what math concepts they are on and where they need more practice (cue the fun math games!).
Reading I am so excited that our reading crews are up and running so smoothly already! We're loving so many aspects of Daily 5 which allows me to better meet the needs of the Sailors at my reading table. Thanks so much for supporting your Sailor and reading with them daily for 20 minutes.
Writing We are Small Moment writing machines. But we're also digging "free writing" during Daily 5. We'll have so many wonderful pieces to celebrate at our first writing celebration.
Science Our grass is growing so well that we might need to mow it. ;) It'll be coming home soon!
Check out our pollenation! Ask your Sailor about our yummy but sticky Cheeto activity.
Our first play performance by the Crocodile Crew!
Chipper's first Illini football game!
Kylar reported to us that Mr. McGill and Grace were up on the Jumbotron!
