Learning Lately

Reading- We are continuing to practice memorization of sight words. We keep reviewing vowel sounds and digraphs. We are working on hearing long and short vowel sounds this week.

Writing-We worked on conventions this week. We worked on punctuation, word spaces, and doing our very best spelling. The kids had free choice on the genre of writing. Next week we will begin our opinion writing unit.

Math- We continued working on addition and subtraction with a variety of games and activities. We also used the pan balances to make equal and unequal weights. We did a survey and asked the class what their favorite animal and made graphs of our data.

Science/Social studies- We studied living and non living this week. We went on a walk to look for living and non living things. We learned what living things need. T
