Today was spent on individual reading groups. It is so fun to watch these kids learn and master new sight words and phonics concepts. We added to our writing journals and spent the rest of the time talking about Decimal Street. Today I really focused on how when we look at a number we need to "see" the "units house" and the "tens" house. We're tying to make the connection between the written number and the base ten blocks. Think of the number 16. You know that if you were to make the number with base 10 blocks you'd have 6 units and 1 stick of ten. That is what we're aiming for - we're not there yet, but we'll keep working on it until we can build numbers to 99!
