Students worked on showing different money amounts using ten sticks and ones. Then they made a new ten to help them add two numbers. This is getting them reading for two digit addition.
Our last type of poetry was simile. First I gave the students three skittles and had them compare them to something else. For example, “This skittle is as red as a strawberry.” Then I read a very silly book called, My Friend is as Sharp as a Pencil. We wrote simile poems about ourselves and then drew pictures to show the similes.
