Yesterday we watched a funny, older video about sneezing and coughing. We have a lot of sneezing and coughing going on right now in the classroom. Some of the kids are doing a great job of sneezing or coughing into their sleeve, but we have some who do not even attempt to do this right now. We watched this video then practiced sneezing and coughing into our sleeve. Ask me to show you how I do it in my sleeve! Here's the video. It's good for a chuckle!
We worked more with short o today. We read a poem and found words that have parts of words with short o in them. We worked with op and made as many words as we could. We also added endings to some of the words. So we made words such as mop, hop, and even hopping and mopping.
In math, we worked more with story problems. We made sure we understood what the problem was asking and what we needed to know to solve the problems. We practiced drawing a picture to solve the problem. We know this is just a quick sketch, but it's important it's done neatly so it's accurate. We also added a number sentence to show the answer to the problem. After we sketched and solved the problem, we read through it again and wrote a number sentence that goes with the problem. We know that we add when we join or put together two groups, and we are subtracting when we take apart a group.
Have a nice evening!
