 We have been reading up a storm!  All of the children worked in homogeneous groups using the Wright Group series, literature, and/ or phonics readers. We are learning to use our book as a resource to complete follow-ups to what we have read.  They are reading to their friends for additional practice.

Last week we completed our “apple” activities.  We analyzed the data on the apple graph and the students came up with some interesting observations.  We learned about how apples grow and completed our apple booklets.  In Math, Mr. Boze has been teaching the children how to log on to ST Math with their passwords.  Almost all of the children already know their beginning passwords, and the rest of the class will learn them this week. This week we will be working on the AAB pattern. We extended our sorting activities by sorting ourselves and a collection of buttons.
