Journal Update- 10-12-18

Reading- We have been working on learning the different "station" that we will do during Reading Rotation. I will begin Reading Rotations next week but I won't pull the small reading groups until the week of Oct. 22nd. When students are in their small reading groups, I've quite adamant that students don't interrupt us unless it's an emergency. We are working on "ask 3 before me." We continue to work on alliteration, talk about idioms, and homophone. We also talked about adjective to describe nouns. They will have the opportunity to share some adjectives (not opinion please) on their yellow homework "Teddy Bear Time." Please have this homework in by next Tuesday. Please bring the teddy bear they described on the homework sheet to school on Wednesday. We will also make teddy bears out of bread and have a yummy snack on Wednesday

Math-

We are working really hard on doubles facts (ask them to sing our doubles song) and double plus one (4+5) or double plus 2 (6+8). We will continue working on greater or less than and making equations.
