In math we will continue to use mental math strategies for two digit numbers. These include using 10's to add and subtract. For example if you are adding 28 +7, think of 7 as 5+2 so it now becomes 28+(5+2) and they learned last week about the associative or grouping property so they know that they can group that as (28+2)+5. So 28+2=30, 30+5=35, so 28+7=35.
In Science we are looking at the inside of an egg and in Social Studies we are learning the cardinal directions. In Art last week we started learning about Vincent Van Gogh, and we painted a look-a-like painting of his Sunflowers. We tried to paint using one of his techniques where you can really see the brush strokes. Check out your kiddos art under the tab student work! They are beautiful! We will be continuing Van Gogh this week with Starry Night.
Due to issues with the NWEA browser last week we were unfortunately not able to complete our testing. We will have our final reading test on Tuesday morning at 8:30. Thank you so much for your patience with this!
This week we have picture day on Thursday the 19th, as well as Open House on Thursday the 19th from 6-7. I will be giving two identical presentations, one at 6 and one at 6:30.
Have a wonderful week!!
