This week we’re working on subtraction story problems.  And by this I mean SUPER simple story problems.  Like:  Our turkey has four feathers.  He lost 2 feathers.  How many does he have left?  We will actually use some turkey cut outs and clothespins to practice these subtraction story.

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



Veteran’s Day

We read Hero Dad and Hero Mom and make a circle map to describe Veteran’s.  Then we make Hero Hats!
