Printing

February 27th, 2017

Recently, we began printing on interlined paper and whiteboards. The students are learning that some letters are “ceiling touchers” while others are “swimmers.” They have been choosing words from books that represent a variety of phonics lessons, and then printing those words on interlined boards and sheets. The children also give one another feedback during this process.

Math Strategies

February 27th, 2017

In math, we have been practicing our addition and subtraction facts using a variety of strategies. Some of these include: doubles, almost doubles, friends of ten, fact families, number lines, counting on, counting back, drawing pictures. The students make use of their write on- wipe off desk surfaces to solve math problems and share their thinking.
