Week Three

We have been busy working on our procedures and routines. In Reading, we have been building our Read to Self stamina. We are up to 8 minutes!!!!!
In Science we finished up learning about different types of scientists. We conducted an investigation when we learned about chemists.
In Math we have been subitizing. Subitizing is a big kid math word that means looking at a set of items and knowing how many there are without counting each item in the set. We practiced with dots. After we became experts we subitized and added one more. We got so good, we were able to subtract one. Subitizing is a great activity for you to practice at home! (Dice are great to start with.)

A few reminders:
  • Monday is Picture Day. All students will be having their pictures taken, but if you want to purchase any you must prepay. You can send in money with the order form envelope that was sent home last week. You can also pay online (before Monday).
  • Being on time every day is VERY important. I pick the students up in the cafeteria between 7:45 - 7:50. We walk to our classroom, unpack and immediately leave for Special Area. 
See you Monday!
Ms. Gilbert
