This week are practicing subtraction AROUND THE ROOM. There are subtraction problems hidden all over the room. We have to find them and solve them. It's fun because it gets us up and moving and working on subtraction at the same time.
We're also working on building words within certain phonics rules. We start with one word and then change one letter/ending/combination of letters at a time to make new words. It's harder than you might think. For example: start with make. Change the k to a d. Remove the e. Change the m to an s. What did you end up with? Sad.
