This has been a very busy week, even though we didn't go Monday and we had an early out. We continue to work on our addition and subtraction. We learned a new game this week - tens go fish. Instead of asking for matching cards, we ask for card with numbers on them that make a ten with a card we had. You can see we had a really good time. Mrs. West comes into our room during math time to help us play our math games and get better at our math facts and problems.
You probably have noticed that we are going to be practicing our math facts a lot at home. We are trying to earn a chocolate party like they did in the book we have been reading, Mr. Klutz is Nutz. AND, like the book , the kids thought they would like to see Mrs. Miller kiss a pig! Well...they have to come up with a pig, and they have to return 600 of our practice sheets. Parents, please don't forget to sign it or it won't count.
We are going to begin our family research soon. Remember, unless you are an Indian, your relatives probably came from a country across the ocean - although it was probably many, many generations back. We are so excited to do our research on the internet, and we get to use some of the new books we are getting for the library.
