Look what we are learning!

Reader’s Workshop: This month we will be launching Reader’s Workshop by establishing classroom reading expectations. Mini-lessons will focus on how to select “just right” books, reviewing qualities of effective readers, building reading stamina, asking questions before/during/after reading, and studying how character’s actions contribute to the plot of the story. Students will use their reading journal to respond to text.

Math Workshop: In math workshop we will be establishing classroom procedures and expectations so we can spend maximum time fully engaged in learning activities to promote higher level thinking. This month we will focus on understanding multiplication strategies (repeated addition, making equal groups, arrays, skip counting), using algorithms, and multiplying one-digit numbers by multiples of 10. Your child will begin multiplying by 0, 1, 2, 5, 10, and 11.
