We are working on long o and long u right now in spelling and reading. LONG O can be spelled with a sneaky e on the end like slope or with /oa/ in the middle like coat. LONG U makes a couple different sounds and can be spelled with a sneaky e on the end like mule, /oo/ in the middle like food, or /ui/ in the middle like fruit.
In math we are working on place value. Today we started our new unit by talking about grouping. Ten is an easy number to work with. Instead of adding 9+1+4 we can combine numbers to make it 10+4. They both equal 14! We started off by balancing some equations to make 10 on both sides.
