We have started testing in reading. Yesterday and today I started pulling kids over to read different level books to find their reading level and to assess their comprehension. They are doing a great job. I am really impressed with how they are listening to themselves and self-correcting when their reading doesn't sound right, look right or make sense.
In math, we practiced writing numbers to 100. We also talked about how sometimes they mix up the digits in two-digit numbers. We watched this video of Ernie reading a poem about the number 12, but the digits keep moving on him. This was hysterical to my 22 little friends. We used ten sticks and squares that have a value of one, and made 2 digit numbers. The kids practiced counting the sticks by tens, then pausing and thinking to count on by one the remaining squares. They did an awesome job, in fact, I added the 100 square to the numbers and they figured out a couple three digit numbers. They were so proud of themselves!
Enjoy the warm weather!
