Question of the week

Tell me about your favorite vacation! Where did you go and what did you do?

Math club

Friday was the our first Math Club meeting hosted by Mrs. Short and myself. This week we concentrated on geometry. The session started with a reading of the book The Greedy Triangle followed by a group activity with licorice. We then broke off into 6 centers. The centers included: making 2D shapes on the table with shaving cream, shape riddle books with a partner, a geometry mystery box, a geometry board game, making shapes on the geoboards, and we made 3D shapes with sticks and spheres. Everyone took home a packet that contained 3 geometry games to play at home with their families.

While they are reading they work on CAFE skills. CAFE stands for comprehension, accuracy, fluency and
expanded vocabulary. Ask your child
