Thursday, March 31, 2016

Tremendous Tuesday!

We began the day with an assembly about Autism Awareness Day!

We then had physical education with Mr. Slyk.

After Chelsea presented her family tree and symbol to the class:


Then, we began subtraction with two digit numbers using a place value mat.
We first did a question as a class: “Lizzie has 55 comic books. She gives 14 of them to her cousin, and keeps the rest. How many comic books does she have now?”
We began with 55 comic books; we put 5 ten sticks in the 10s column and 5 ones in the 1s column. Next, we need to take 14 away.  
When we subtract, writing down the number helps us to see how many 10’s and 1’s we are removing. We removed one 10 and placed it beside the one ten at the bottom and took away four 1’s and placed them beside the four at the bottom. We can still see the original 55 and the answer 41 is also clear. Students then worked on a similar problem in their math books using cubes and a place value mat in order to practice taking from then tens column and giving to the ones column in order to subtract.
Students were also given 6 questions and they needed to figure out which questions would need a trade. We figured out that we could look at the ones column to decide if we need to trade or not.
For example:
This question does not need a trade because 8-2=6

With this question, we will need to trade because we cannot take 9 from 8 (8-9). Therefore, we would borrow or trade 1 ten stick and bring them over to the ones column.
We circled the four questions that needed a trade and then figured out the answers using a place value mat.

After first recess and lunch we had music.

We then had French with Mdm. Stella.

After second recess and lunch, we began learning about how to write a proper letter. We need to make sure to include the Date (Heading), Greeting, Opening sentence, Topic sentence, Body, Concluding sentence, and a Closing. We looked at an example that Ms. Jaskolka wrote as well as a writing package that went into more detail about how we write a proper letter. After, students were given letters with mistakes and they used a checklist to figure out what was missing or incorrect.
