In order to build our fact power, students in the Patience Fruit Stand had to work to find the missing addend in addition sentences. This required lots of thinking as the firsties used strategies such as subtraction, counting on, and their fact power memory to play games, build towers, and solve story problems. This is a TRICKY, TRICKY skill, requiring a full understanding of how numbers work!
We also spent time honoring our nation’s veterans and learning about the different branches of the military. Mrs. Ursua visited and shared with us all about her job while in the navy. We got to see photographs of what her job entails and even try on navy uniforms worn by her and Mr. Ursua!
Another highlight of the week was celebrating our Star of the Week: Abigail! Each day Abigail shared something special with us, and at the end of the week received a book of letters the class wrote for her!
