Today we continued to talk about Martin Luther King Jr. We looked at our Scholastic News and also watched the Sneetches. We compared the story of the Sneetches to Martin Luther King.

We also continued to discuss adding and subtracting ten from a number in math. After lots of modeling and using base ten blocks, many students have really grasped this difficult concept!

In Social Studies the class has been talking about needs and wants. We discussed what a need is versus a want. We then watched a short utube clip and then sorted pictures if they were a need or want.

Pirates and place value

Today we continued to practice the -ar sound. We played a game similar to headbanz, but we used pirate hats. The students gave 3 clues to help the “pirate” solve their -ar word on their hat!

In math we continued to learn about place value. We used our tens and ones cubes to show ten more and ten less. This is a very hard concept to understand so today we did a lot of modeling and practicing!
