Wow! The last two weeks have just flown by! We have had homecoming, BRI testing (our reading test) and our MAP testing (the computerized testing we began last year). Whew! We are glad that is all done, and now we can get down to the business of looking at those scores and deciding where to go with our instruction.
We are getting into the swing of Daily 5 and doing a great job of it!. We know that you don't get better are reading and writing unless you read and write --and of course, build our stamina in those areas. We have also been doing our research for our heritage unit and have looked in books and online. Our reports should be done and ready to show off at our tasting festival on Friday (at 1:00). Hope you can come. We can't wait to share what we have learned. Don't forget to send Mrs. Miller those recipes so we can get them in a cookbook!
In math, we are working on addition and subtraction facts, and math fact families. We are getting the hang of them, and they will come in handy as we move on in math skills. We also have our classroom bank and store this week. We are learning a lot about checks, credits, debits, and SHOPPING! It is 21st century skill building at its best!
Besides homecoming, we did manage to have a little fun. We had a "camp out" in our room Friday, complete with smores and sleeping bags!
