Last week we read about Presidents Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.  We also read stories such as, If I Were President, My Teacher For President, and Duck For President.  Our new  popcorn words were: one, two, three. The students have been doing more journal writing and love sharing their writing with the class.  In math we have been continuing to work on addition and subtraction. The students have been finding different ways to make numbers (ex. 10= 10+0, 9+1, 8+2, etc.)
