Toy Recall

In math today, we reviewed place value but began a review of two and three digit addition with regrouping. As I had hoped, the students had strong addition with regrouping skills...unfortunately, as I feared, when I told the group that we would move on to subtraction with regrouping tomorrow, there was a collective groan!

During reading, we read and discussed our first issue of Time for Kids. The topic of the cover story for this issue was the recent recall of toys made in China. We had a wonderful discussion! We also identified many text features that can be found in non-fiction text, including; photographs, captions, bold print and headings.

The class then went to PE, lunch and recess.

After lunch, we will begin a new book by Andrew Clements, the author of Frindle. WE finished Frindle yesterday...GREAT book!!!! We will also read Today I feel Silly By Jamie Lee Curtis and write about emotions in our writer's notebooks. Then, we will hopefully finish creating our class rules and expectations...

Please remember that book orders are due by Sept. 10 Also, the Braggin' Dragon poster and a picture of your child is due this Friday, Sept. have to see our Braggin' Dragon bulletin board...thanks to Kelly Brown it is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
