Reflection on last weekThe only thing I didn't do in last week's plans was math. Actually, I did do math, but I always forget that our math routines always take so much longer during the first few weeks. We didn't get to the Addition & Subtract Word Problems until Friday and didn't get to any of our Number Sense Routines.
I have big plans for math this week. I'm hoping we'll get to it all!
This week has a lot more packeted into it. As always, click on the picture or this link to be taken to the PDF with clickable links.
Whole Group Reading ComprehensionThis week, we're focusing on Story Structure. I'll use one story from our reading program, Treasures, as well as two other read alouds. With each one we'll determine the characters, setting, problem and solution.
MathWe will continue our Daily Math and Addition and Subtraction Word Problems. We are starting our addition fact strategies, focusing on Count On and Plus 10 this week.
WritingWe're starting narratives this week! We'll focus on choosing a small moment and drafting a writing piece using some tools in my Narrative Tools packet.
We're also going to start Work on Writing during Daily 5 time. This morning I sat down and created the wall headers for all the students' choice. I'll introduce a couple this week, but I'll be pulling resources from the linked packets. Our Daily 5 Work on Writing time is separate from our Writer's Workshop time in the afternoon, but I didn't want to rework my template above!
Community BuildingWe're going to continue with our community building this week from the linked packets. My main purpose is to be able to sit down and assess a few students throughout the week. Overall, I've got a great group of kiddos, but there are a handful that are going to need some extra attention.
