Addition Practice and Rainbow Fish

Wow!  For a short week, we sure have been busy!  The kids have not been outside for recess in forever due to the extreme cold weather.  Today was the first day in a long time. 

In Math, we rolled two dice and added them together.  Then we recorded our answer.
Do you want to play this at home?  Click here.  You will have to create an account to access the sheet.

We also worked on a writing project this week.  We were learning about animal body parts, specifically the fish as we read a story called The Rainbow Fish.  You can listen to this story, here.
After we read the story, we labeled the parts of the fish.  Then we used a graphic organizer to organize what we were going to write about.  Our last step was to put our work on fancy paper.  They turned out wonderful! It is nice to have a bit of color during this cold January!

Keep practicing those popcorn words!
