Good Afternoon

We had a great day today.  We were very busy.  In reading, we read the decodable book "The Red Star" and answered comprehension questions.  We also started reading groups with Mrs. Potter.  I will work in small groups with the students every day.  I try to see a minimum of two groups per day.  In grammar, we finished the chapter on types of sentences and sentence structure.  In math we worked on word problems and related facts - addition and subtraction.  We are more than half way through the chapter and I anticipate the chapter test will be next week.  I will let you know the date and I will post the review on the blog and send it home.  In science we sorted solids, liquids and gases.

A big shout out to those students who went on spelling city last night!!! Great job!!!
It was a great day!
