In writing we getting ready to conclude our persuasive writing unit. The students have written all types of reviews including restaurants, movies, games, toys, and books. One of their favorite pieces was persuading the leprechaun to come to their trap. We learned to talk right to our readers balancing that fine line of being persuasive but not bossy. We learned to write catchy introductions and conclusions with urgency. We also worked with our writing partners to give each other writing check ups to make sure our reviews made sense and were easy to read.
In math we have continued our experience with tens and ones. We added groups of 10, added tens on a hundred chart, added tens to 2-digit numbers, used mental math to add tens, added to a 2-digit number and we practiced solving word problems. I reinforced the importance of drawing pictures and writing number sentences. I also challenged the students to find another way to solve the problem.
