I am having a hard time believing we only have two weeks until our holiday break! This year is flying by, and your kiddos have been working VERY hard! They deserve a nice, long break!
The Science kits that are provided by our fabulous PTA came home today. These will need to be returned on Monday.
This week Eva was our Star Student, and we enjoyed learning more about her. Chase will be our Star Student next week.
In Language Arts, we focused on inferences, retelling a story, and made text to self connections with Wimberly Worried. In Writer's Workshop, we focused on creating a beginning, middle, and end of a story. The kids have been doing a fantastic job of using their word wall, and sounding out words, while writing a story. We've been working on capitalization, space, and punctuation...and they are really coming along!
Handwriting Without Tears focused on the letters O and Q.
In math we worked with ordinal numbers. We had a lot of activities to help us identify and arrange ordinal numbers, and they had a blast! We made a class book that modeled "10 Little Rubber Ducks" by Eric Carle...and each kiddo was assigned an ordinal number. They are looking forward to seeing it in our class library!
In Science we discussed objects in the sky. We made cloud observations, learned a lot of fun facts about the sun (ask them when you have a moment!), learned about stars, and the moon.
In Social Studies we learned about Maps. We started with a map of the classroom, then the school, next was the neighborhood, and finally we used Google Earth to explore our place in space.
