Week in Review

Last week we introduced the sounds of ch, sh, and th and sight words: go, by, look.  We used a number line to add and subtract. Students also practiced reading and writing words with -ot.  We have also been reading and writing about places in our community and community workers.  On Friday students used forks to pain tulips, finished their rocket ship craft and drew a fox.
