Reading- We learned about how stories are structures this week by learning about characters and setting. We also briefly touched on problem and solution. We continued practicing our long and short vowel sounds as well as our digraph sounds. We are focusing on using all we know about sounds to blend sounds together to read words as well as break a word into individual sounds to spell words.
Writing-We read non fiction books to get ideas for our own teaching books. We are working on drawing realistic pictures, labels, and telling facts. We are learning the difference between tell “true stories” and telling “facts and information”.
Math-We reviewed much of our previous content and also did lots of games (that were really assessments). This kids also explored weight with pan balances and connected the balanced pans (when things weight the same amount) to the equals symbol.
Science and Social Studies- Our cool tool was teacher’s choice this week. We worked on “follow rules you know”. We enjoyed a mystery science video about why airplanes can’t fly in space.
