Mrs. Borden and Mrs. Jones’ Newsletter (week of March 18, 2019)
Writing- This week we were writing about our feelings and things that make us happy and sad. We also brainstormed at least 10 different forms of transportation and each picked a form of transportation and where we would take that transportation. This writing corresponded with our Reading Story, Max Takes The Train. We are writing every day and tackling new topics to write about each time. We are trying to write more words/phrases each time.
Reading- We have a new story this week and it is: Mayday! Mayday! it is a nonfiction story. Our essential question is: What kinds of transportation helps us in an emergency? Our amazing words are: rescue, pilot, yacht, sailor, mechanic, shimmering. We will be working on cause and effect and we will be working on where we find capital letters. We also get to explore the different parts of a rescue helicopter. Keep on practicing those sight words and reading together each night for your book logs!
Math- We are well into Unit 5, Understanding Subtraction. We have been working on counting objects, counting how many to take away and then counting how many are left and writing our answer. We have been working on telling subtraction stories and identifying a minus sign. We also have been counting by 10s and identifying 2 and 3 digit numbers.
Science/Social Studies- We counted down until St. Patrick’s Day and explored rainbows in our Weekly Readers. We also talked about what makes us lucky and started a writing about that topic. We are so excited for Spring and all of the nice weather that is coming. We will also be looking at the changes Spring brings.
