In Language Arts we are working on words with er and ed. We are learning how to summarize a story. We are learning about synonyms and sensory words. We are still working on poetry and writing creative stories. We wrote a story from the perspective of a turkey. We have completed our month long unit on Spookley the Square Pumpkin.

In math we continue to work on addition and subtraction strategies. We continue to use part / part/ whole maps to help us add and subtract. We continue to work on word problems and various methods (using manipulatives, drawing pictures, etc.) to help us solve these problems.
