We have a short week of school this week, but I am excited to continue the work we began after winter break. The kids came back excited to get back to work and all of my K-5 students did an outstanding job at school with our first week together again. It was the best week of this school year in my humble opinion.
The week of 1-24, there will not be PA or TD classes. I am going to be assisting in different classes all week with school wide assessments we do three times a year to measure progress.
KMath will have two days of skip counting activities as we begin to understand the relationship between repeated addition and multiplication. Last week, we got a bit sidetracked with symmetry and snowflakes because of what I was doing with the lit group.
KLiteracy will only have one day with me this week to discuss the main idea in a beautiful picture book The Scarecrow by Beth Ferry. The kids and I will work on the key elements included in a retelling of this tale.
