- 11/4/16 - Superkids Unit 3 Assessment
Superkids: In Superkids, we continued working on Unit 3, which focuses on decoding and encoding le words. Using our Super Spy Readers, we read words aloud from our Word Work Book. Your child identified the letters in the middle of each word (d,d; p,p; c,k; n,g). Additionally, we discussed how lots of words that end in le are spelled with either two of the same letters or two different consonants right after the vowel and before the le at the end. In reading groups, we read the Superkids Short "Oswald Pretends." In Writer's Workshop, we continued opinion writing. This morning we began to generate ideas for writing about seasons. For example, the weather, things you do outside, things you do inside, sports you play or watch, holidays and vacations, and the foods you eat during each of the seasons.
Math: In math, we continued chapter 3 of our subtraction unit. Today, we focused on subtracting from 9 and 10 using a ten-frame. Using this strategy, your child boxed out a specific number to represent the amount being taken away. For example: If the word problem is 10-4=6, than your child would draw a box around 4 counters as they are taking away 4 from the total number of counters.
Religion: In religion, we began Chapter 9, which focuses on how Jesus died and rose to New Life. Today, your child learned that Jesus was a good teacher. He wanted his followers to understand what he was teaching.
Theme of the Week: This week we are incorporating candy corn into math. We will use candy corn templates to practice vertical subtraction, practice estimation with a candy corn jar, and practice skip counting using candy corn.
