Math Update

This week we are learning about addition.  We are practicing different addition strategies.  Yesterday we used objects to practice addition.  We used green triangles as shark teeth to help us with addition facts.

We will practice more addition strategies this week.  The tricky part now is reading the math fact and looking closely at the math sign, is it addition or subtraction?

We are learning about weather!  Yesterday we talked about how it would feel and what it would look like on the perfect day to play outside.  Today we began to talk about different weather tools like a rain gauge, thermometer, anemometer, wind sock, and weather vane.   The students asked to start a picture collection of weather tools they have at home and tools they see as they are driving.  If you have any of these weather tools at home take a picture and send it in.  Thanks for your help!
