• Began discussing the attributes of a fiction story.
• Researched a community helper in our TRIBES group.
• Started our word study (-ap family).
• Assessed our ability to rhyme.
• Listened to the story Room on the Broom and built a “broom” that could hold creatures out of 5 straws and tape.
• Related missing part number bonds to missing addend equations.
• Determined if an equation was true or false.

THIS WEEK WE WILL….

• Continue determining when syllables are open or closed.
• Review specific fiction story elements including characters, setting, problem and solution.
