Our Writing Goal for 3rd Quarter is
Writing Information!
We are learning the difference between fact and opinion and using facts to help us write informational pieces.
Each of our pieces must include:
  • Topic Sentence
  • Fact
  • Fact
  • Fact
  • Conclusion

We are continuing to learn subtraction to 20.
We are also working on what makes a math equation true or false?
For example:
1+1=2 is TRUE!
3+4=9-7 is FALSE!

Students need to know how to solve both sides of an equation. For example:
and then decide if it is TRUE or FALSE.
This takes some focus, but we're getting there!
