postheadericon End of First Marking Period

What a great end to the first marking period.  We took the math district common assessment on Thursday and everyone in the class got a 90% or better.   I was so excited.  It amazes me how much the children have grown in just 2 months.  When it counts they really shine!

This week we started talking about communities in reading and social studies.  We are learning about different types of communities both big and small.  We are also learning how to be a good citizen. 

In math we are working on our addition facts using doubles, doubles plus one and the number line.  We are excited to be able to add bigger numbers.  We also have been working hard on skip counting and many have mastered it and a few are so close.

Please be sure to turn in your signed blog slip.  I would love to post our I-PICK song and Halloween pictures as soon as all of them are returned.
