News! (12/1-12/5)

Math

This week we started a subtraction unit.  We learned subtraction is not as easy as addition and that it’s going to be a challenge for all of us.  This week we also did subtraction riddles.  It was a challenge for all of us but it was fun!  For an example, one of them was, ‘The distance between 100 and me is 28.  What number can I be?’

 

The difference between the two numbers is 56.

Equations: 128 – 56 = 72      72 + 56 = 128

Every Friday, when we have math instead of just the usual stuff we have Fun Fact Friday (FFF) too!  In Fun Fact Friday everybody plays a math game with their math partner.  The games we played this week are: Go Collecting, Close to 100, and Collections Match!  TGIF!  (Thank Goodness It’s Friday!)

Reading

In reading this week we did a paper and it told us to write the main idea down and then one cool fact about it.  It also asked us to ask ourselves a question, then we had to answer it.  We also did main ideas going along with supporting details.
