Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a terrific and safe holiday!

In reading we are working on asking questions before, during and after we read books using the Q-Chart. In writing we are working on small moment writing (personal narratives) as well as descriptive writing (we did a fun activity where students had to give 3 to 5 clues about a gift they received but could not use the name of the gift in their clues).

Students in grade 1 are working on counting and making numbers up to 100 and students in grade 2 are working on counting and making numbers to 200. We have been playing games with base ten materials (sticks and cubes that are used to represent groups of 10 and 1).

Best regards,
