Week of November 13, 2017

Happy Veteran’s Day! This week we will honor our veterans during social studies by learning about the branches of our military, and what it means to be a veteran. If you have not returned your “My Hero” cards, it’s not too late! We will keep our heroes wall up this week.

Here is a sneak peak at the week ahead…

Social Studies Topic- What it means to be a veteran.

Math- We will continue to work on strategies in adding to 20. So far we have practiced, counting on, using a number line, and adding doubles. We are memorizing our doubles addition sentences to 20. Flashcards are great practice at home for this skill. ( 2+2=4….10+10=20) This week, we will tackle the concept of making 10 to add.
