Writing Workshop:

     Students will learn to Write About Reading in which they will write detailed letters where they will  develop and share opinions on the characters they are reading about .

     They will learn to introduce the book, write an opinion and  state reasons to support their opinions.

     Also, students will be encouraged to write paragraphs. They will revisit writing introductions and conclusions.

Helpful Tips for Parents:

  • Encourage your child to reread his/her writing.
  • Ask your child if they checked for capitalization at the beginning of their sentences and ended in punctuation.

Math Workshop:

     In math this month, students will continue their classroom routines, such as, “What Time Is It?”, “Today’s Number” and “Fact Fluency”.

     Students will be practicing their skill and knowledge of subtraction fluency within 100.

     Students will learn how to compare and solve word problems containing subtraction. They will learn subtraction facts for example, numbers that equal 10 (12-2=10), and subtracting from 100 (100-17=83).   Students will learn subtraction strategies such as, subtracting in parts and add up or subtract back.

Subtraction Strategies:

62 - 29 = ?

Subtract in Parts

Add Up or Subtract Back

62-2 = 60

60-20 = 40

40-7 = 33

62-20 = 42

42-2 = 40

40-7 = 33

29+1 = 30

30+30 = 60

60+2 = 62

1+30+2 = 33

29+30 = 59

59+1+1+1 = 62

30+1+1+1 = 33
