Bollinger's Class

Phonics:  

We worked on twin consonants this week. Twin consonants only make one sound in our word, it follows a short vowel. (cuff, mutt, fizz, dress) We also worked on the digraph ch and sh. We are learning that they work together. (ch-chin, chip, such / sh- ship, shop, wish) Reading:

We are working on sound power. Making sure that our word looks right, sounds right, and matches the letters. We are also practicing ending sounds -ing, -s, and twin consonants. We read books at our independent reading level, working on fluency. Math: We are working on subtraction; we know that subtraction means to take away. We are learning about the minus sign and the placement of numbers in a subtraction sentence. (First number: how many items we have all together, Second number: what we are taking away, and the Final/Last number: how many we have left.) 6-4=2 etc.

Writing:

We are finished our opinion pieces! We know an opinion is how we think or feel, there is no right or wrong. We have to back up our answers with reasons why we feel/think this way. (ice cream vs brownie) (winter vs spring) Science: We have built our galimotos and reviewed forces of motion. (push/pull-cause/effect)
