We read 2 folktales today.
My students came up with their own moral to the story- It's important to help our friends. I agreed that that was a good lesson to learn from the story.
The next folktale we read was this one.
It doesn't look like it would match the first story, but it was about friends as well. In this story, the Sun and Water and friends and Sun wanted Water to be able to come visit him. In order for Water to be able to visit, Sun and his wife Moon had to build a bigger house.
We began our science lesson by listing the different things one might see in the sky during the day and night. Once again I was pleasantly surprised by my students' answers!
In math we started a new topic- SUBTRACTION. The way the text teaches subtraction is by using the words less than. We have used that term before in the year, but in a different context. Previously we used it when comparing two numbers. Now we are using it when finding the answer to a subtraction sentence. For example: What is 2 less than 8?
Well, thank goodness I taught my students this handy-dandy song to remember when it comes to subtraction!
1. Find the bigger number (8)
2. Subtract the smaller number (5) using fingers, counters, etc.
3. Find the answer (3)
Finding sight words
