As of 11/8
This week we introduced spelling words with a -k (cook), -ke (bake), and a -ck(back). Students continue to practice identifying short and long vowel sounds and using spelling patterns to spell words with that pattern. We finished our fiction reading unit and students set goals to focus their reading over the next few weeks. Many students are working on retelling (summarizing) what they have read and word solving new "tricky" words they encounter.
In math we are tackling mystery number puzzles. Students are working with mathematical clues to discover the mystery number and practicing writing their own clues. This helps develop mathematical vocabulary, number-sense, place value and math facts.
In social studies students have completed trading cards. The cards are illustrated with an image and have a related fact on the back. Students will be trading the cards to teach classmates about the topic they learned. We've also discussed how the seasons drive the Wampanoag way of life. Next week we will talk about ways the Wampanoag showed their gratitude and students will share ways they show they are thankful for aspects of their own life.
