Last year, I moved up to third grade. When doing so, I also switched over to using Facebook as my main source of communication with families. While Facebook has worked well in communicating with families, it did not allow for adequate photo organization and storage. Because of this, I will be going back to using this blog as my platform for communication. Important updates and need-to-knows will still be posted on Facebook, but the weekly reviews will be posted here.

Today we counted our Otter Buck collection for the week. We earned $269 worth of positive behavior! We were all very proud of our accomplishment and what a great way to count numbers above 100!
Another thing that has gone very smoothly, is ending our day with an extra snack. It has been very calming for all and a great time to socialize with each other before the day comes to a close.
This week we worked on counting by 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s. We represented those numbers with tally marks, popsicle sticks and pennies and nickels. We also introduced Math Work Places. Students explored unifix cubes, pattern blocks, dominoes, geoboards and polydrons.
This week we have been reviewing our color words and creating color sentences. Students are brushing up on their handwriting skills as well. We will continue to build on their handwriting as well as move into a more formal Writer's Workshop model as the year progresses.
