We have also just begun the first story in our 4th unit of Reading Street. "Mama's Birthday Present" is an adorable piece of realistic fiction about a little boy who is not quite sure of what to give his mother as a gift for her birthday. Yet in the end, his mother shares that the best gift of all is being to celebrate with the ones you love most!
We finished writing our letters of support to the marine recruits, in South Carolina, who were not receiving any mail from home. It's always nice to know you are appreciated and acknowledged for being special to someone. Your students did an amazing job and should be proud that they were able to support others with words of encouragement. I know I'm very proud of them!😀
In math we are focusing on fact families and the relationship between those numbers.
