We are on our way to becoming great readers! The students discussed the importance of making predictions as we read during our whole group lesson. As a class, we agreed that making predictions helps with keeping engaged in the text as we want to determine if our prediction was correct or if we need to revise our prediction. We also discussed the importance of determining the problem and solution in a text as it helps with understanding the main character's struggles and celebrations. The students had an assignment to complete showing their understanding of the problem and solution of a text.
Students used the place-value blocks today to help them understand when they need to regroup when subtracting. The point of the game was to start out at 100 and race their partner to see who could get to 0 first. We will use these skills we started with today in our subtracting with regrouping lesson tomorrow.
The students were all very excited for Mrs. Deborah today as we started learning about the history of fabrics and sewing. The students had to use their skills of context clues paired with their schema of modern fabrics to gain an understanding of the advances in sewing throughout the last 100 years. The assignment notebook code for tonight is for the students to identify one piece of information their learned from Mrs. Deborah. I hope you all have a great night and I look forward to another great day of learning!
