Amazing Words- Students don't need to spell or read all of these words.  They just need to know what they mean when they hear them.  These words are in some of our readings this week.

Spelling  -  

We will be working on words with spellings for the long e sound such as beat, sheep, and happy.  

Note regarding RtI time -   
Individual classroom teachers are responsible for the teaching of reading, math, and writing skills to their own classroom students.  During the 30 min. RtI time students divide up into various groups and go to get some additional reading, math, or writing instruction or skill reinforcement.                          

Language -      We are discussing handwriting expectations and letter formations.  We are discussing compound sentences.  The class is discussing paragragh structure and topic sentences.

Math -   The students are continuing to work on number sense and  mental math.  The students are beginning lessons with addition on trading, also known as regrouping.  We are working on some problem solving in small groups.   We are continuing to work in our math journals wtih some problem solving.

        ** Math Games** 

Science -   We are beginning discussions and readings about forest wildlife.  We are continuing to get updates on the Monarch migration and Mexican Monarch Sanctuaries.   
Social Studies and Global Awareness -   We will welcome in 2019 with some new year wishes.  We are reviewing what  STARR means.  We are continuing to 'Fill others' buckets'. 


**Tip of the Week ** 

   Some children need to practice number sense and understanding number bonds.  One way to work on this is to give a child a number (within the range the child should know) and have him come up with a number of different ways to get to that number or to break that number up.

 Example -  36
26 + 10 =        38 -2 =       20 +10+6 =
25+11=       46-10=       18+18=  

6+6=     7+5=     14-2=     
12+0=     10+2=     4+4+4=
