What Did We Do This Week?
Language Arts: We learned about persuasive writing this week! After reading and comparing The Three Little Pigs and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, we wrote a persuasive paragraph supporting our reasons why we believed the characters. We also began our poetry unit! We wrote a descriptive All About Me poem, a comparison poem using our favorite colors, and an I Wish poem. Our new word wall words were: because, children, second, people, grade.
Math: This week we completed Unit 8, Twos, Fives, and Tens. This unit focuses on addition, subtraction, and the number system. We will begin our last unit next week!
Our math focus points this week included:
- using cubes in tens and ones to represent a two-digit number
- adding a one-digit number or 10 to a two-digit number
- Adding a multiple of 10 to a two digit number
- subtracting a multiple of 10 from a multiple of 10
Science & Social Studies: We began learning about different traditions and holidays in Japan, India, China, and Sri Lanka. Don’t forget that the homework letter to our class explaining a family tradition is due back to school on Wednesday, May 22nd.
