Good Afternoon!

We had a great day today.  In reading we read the decodable book "Try My Pie" and answered comprehension questions in complete sentences.  We did cursive letter "j" - a hard one!  In math we continued to work on regrouping in subtraction.  Some students are having a hard time deciding when they actually do/don't have to regroup.  You may want to work on this at home.  In religion we continue to discuss the Eucharist and the Last Supper.  We read the book "The Snowy Day" and started to write stories about what we did on our snow days.  We have been learning two things specifically - how to use a "hook" or great first sentences to grab the reader and how to use descriptive language.  Today we talked about using your senses to describe the snow.

Homework

Spelling - write first 7 sentences, spelling city
Math - p 58
Cursive - letter "f" - this is one of the hardest, so some students may need help
