This week we focused on Winter and the story The Jacket I Wear in the Snow. We read lots of Winter books and completed Winter writing. The students enjoyed making text-to-text connections and sequencing stories. They also made many text-to-self connections as they talked about their break and what they like to do in the Winter. This week we focused on fiction vs. non-fiction, and the students did an excellent job understanding the concept and explaining why.
In math, we wrapped up our unit on numbers to 100 and skip counting. Students did a great job on the test; this is probably the hardest test of the year. Students also worked on counting and naming coins, understanding place value, recognizing number words, addition and subtraction number sentences, and counting forward and backward.
