Note regarding RtI time -  
Individual classroom teachers are responsible for the teaching of reading, math, and writing skills to their own classroom students.  During the 30 min. RtI time students divide up into various groups and go to get some additional reading, math, or writing instruction or skill reinforcement.                          

Language -   We are reviewing verb and noun agreement.  Our class is discussing the formation of paragraphs.  We are learning about the parts to a friendly letter.  The students will also be working on some creative writing pieces having to do with Mr. Luther King and the Chinese New Year.

Math -   We are working on addition with trading or regrouping using two digit numbers.  The students are continuing to practice mental math strategies for speed and accuracy.   We are discussing estimating and word problems. The students are also continuing to work in their math journals.  They will continue to use ipads to do Study Island work.
