Well, is it ever good to be back at school. We had a lot of active learning this week. In phonics we reviewed the digraphs we learned over the last couple of weeks as well as introduced the ending digraph “ck”. In Math we continued to work on addition to 10. Going at a slower pace for this unit is really helping the students get a strong number sense. We used math stories and manipulatives like snap cubes and red and yellow counter chips to help the students get a good understanding of the number sets we were working with. We’ll be finishing off addition next week then moving on to subtraction. We started our new IPC topic with an exploration of kites. We made paper plate circle kites and also paper bag kites and took them outside to fly. The students had a great time with that.
If you click on the below image, it should be an animation of the children taking off with their kites.
