We get to finish publishing our first piece of writing this week; it took a bit longer than expected last week to get our D2 apps set up in a way that their work can easily be shared with me. But now, those who have permission to use their D2 accounts will type their first piece of writing, which is the final stage in the Writing Process, publishing.
In math, we will move on to Chapter 3, which introduces the concepts behind multiplication. We will learn about multiplication as equal groups, using repeated addition to solve multiplication problems, an well as skip counting on a number line. Each Friday for the next few weeks, we will take a step back from the multiplication concepts we are learning and begin exploring Chapter 2, which teaches us about interpreting data as well as using data to create tables and graphs.
We are lucky enough to be participating in an event sponsored by United Way (the same group that awarded us our fish because Attendance Matters) called Read Across the Globe This means that on Monday, we will have a special guest reader in our room to read aloud to us.
Have a great week!
