The days are getting colder! Make sure you dress warm. We only go outside once at big recess, so there is lots of time to get on ski-pants and winter clothes.
We started off the day by practicing our songs. Can you believe our concert is next week! Then we started our regular day opening activities. Our "Using words" were keep, has, but, when. Which word could help us read or spell "strut"? Our spelling word was "demonstrate". Does the last syllable have a long or short vowel sound? If its a long vowel sound how many vowels will we need? We did a closing for "How to Whisper" and practiced editing with red and blue pens. What do you use a red pen for and a blue pen for? We doodled a friendly monster and went into our daily 5. Mrs. MacDonald an I both worked with groups while everyone else did a round of read to self.
After recess we had math. We did a listening quiz. We talked about digits and place value. We worked on number lines with bench marks. We looked at different strategies for adding two numbers. We did an addition work sheet and went over a new strategy for two digit numbers.
After lunch we had PE. We worked on basketball with Mrs. Clancy. Then we went to the computer lab and worked on scratch. We finished off the day working on ti-ti's and ta's (note counts). We signed our agenda's and packed memo's. Get lots of sleep, dress warm, and I will see you in the morning.
