This week in reading, we read a story called, “Animal Park.” We practiced reading and writing words with the short “u” sound and blends like “st”, “fr” and “pl”.  We also talked about identifying characters, setting and the main idea of a story.


In math, we have been adding and subtracting 0, 1 and 2.  We are also practicing doubles like, 2+2=4 and 3+3=6. If we know our doubles facts, it’s easier to add on 0, 1 or 2.  We  used ten frames to add and subtract as well.  Using  ten frames allows us to see how many more ore less to 10.


In social studies, we have been learning  about communities. We read about leaders, following rules and who works in our community.


Don’t forget next Wednesday is an early release day. Enjoy the Thanksgiving break!
