We are also continuing with word family bootcamp!   This week we’re learning OG and OP words!   We will make circle maps then we build words.  Finally we write word family words!



In math we’re working on addition.  Tuesday and Wednesday will be a fun whole group activity involving dump trucks and cheeseballs!   Each ‘stache will have 2 dump trucks.  I’ll have them put a number of cheeseballs in each dump truck and then they will “dump” the cheeseballs to add!   Thursday will be small group with addition!  (Stay tuned for a video and blog post about dump truck addition!)

And that’s our week!!!!
