We began the day reading The Day the crayons Quit. We began the story with a boy named Duncan at school looking for his crayons, but instead of finding his crayon he found a whole bunch of letters!!!!! These letters were from each crayon in his crayon box. Each crayon wrote a letter explaining why they chose to quit. This was a very fun and silly book and it also taught us more about letter writing!!!!!
Next we had French.
When we came to class we had police officers visit our class!!! They found out that our last unit of inquiry was about learning how to be a good citizen so they wanted to congratulate us very being such good citizens and explain how they help the community. We had so much fun with our visitors!
Then we had gym.
After first recess and lunch we had Music.
When students returned, we dove into math. We reviewed how to use a place value mat and the standard algorithm to add two digit numbers. We then moved onto subtraction using the place value mat and standard algorithm.
We first worked on some subtraction problems as a class:
After we worked in partners to solve two digit subtraction problems using the standard algorithm and the place value mat.
At the end of the day we reviewed the book we read in the morning, The Day the crayons Quit. We then talked about the important parts of a letter and some examples of opening, topic, body, and closing sentences we could write related to our story. We had so much fun pretending to be Duncan and writing to the crayons!!! Tomorrow we will be drawing pictures to the crayons based on our letter to them!!
