With only 5 weeks left, the students are working hard to get ready for first grade. I have already told the first grade teachers how unbelievable this group is.
In reading, we continued to work on making connections, retelling, comparing and contrasting, and making predictions. The students loved our unit this week on Eric Carle. They enjoyed learning about how he made his illustrations and reading so many of his wonderful stories.
In math, students practiced addition and subtraction, finding 1, 10, and 100 more and less, measuring, place value, and writing numbers over 100.
