Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a great week off!

What we are learning this week:
In Math we will continue to work with addition and subtraction strategies to 20. Students will be working specifically with word problems and determining the sum, difference, and unknown change/start of each problem. In Social Studies we will learn about the explorations of Lewis, Clark, and Sacagawea. I also have some fun "artifacts" students will get to look at :) During our writing time we will continue to work with informative writing. As the winter break gets closer we will be doing some fun holiday themed writing and craftivities. During reading, we will do a review of capitalization and punctuation as well as syllables. I will also continue to pull reading groups to focus on specific reading strategies as well as begin to assess students' current reading for the 2nd nine week period.

Its going to be a busy and fun 3 weeks! :)
