We also introduced subtraction this week, and the students really seemed to enjoy it. We told subtraction stories, talked about what subtraction means (to "take away"), and did lots of practice problems with books, manipulatives, and pictures. It was a great introduction! I love seeing the kids' growth in math this year.

This week, we also focused on kindness to each other and to the earth. We read The Giving Tree, and discussed ways we can be kinder to each other and give to one another. They also read this book in Spanish with Ms. Monica! What a cool cross-language experience.
Finally, we ended the week with a bang--repurposing old t-shirts into reusable bags. Almost the whole school was there to cut the t-shirts and tie them into bags. Students paired up with their book buddies, which they enjoyed! It was fun to be out in the sun, and doing something to help our planet! SO excited to see this spring weather! Enjoy the weekend everyone!
