During our morning work time, the children illustrated and wrote about a butterfly. They also completed an addition story problem in their Math Journals.
During our Morning Meeting, we focused on finding ‘chunks’ in words, filled in the blanks in the sentences in our Morning Message, and we read and discussed “The Grouchy Ladybug.” The children helped me identify the main character, all of the other characters, the setting, and the Author’s Purpose in this story.
Small group with me: We read the sight word book “Can You Get It?” to focus on the word ‘get,’ which is our new sight word.

The children also took the first part of the Math test for the NWEA spring test portion. They did a wonderful job giving their best effort! They will take the second part of the math portion today, and they will take the Language Arts portion on May 15 and 16. Due to this testing the facts that we had 2 Specials today, the children only completed 2 of their Learning Center rotations. They will finish these Centers today, and all of the children will have their sight word to take hoe by tomorrow.
