Three Cheers for the Leaders!!!
Once upon a time ...... there were three little pigs and a big bad wolf.... that's the story right? But is it? Is there another side? This week in literacy, we read Fractured Fairy tales that really left us asking many questions about who is right and wrong in the stories we know so well. We compared and contrasted many versions of fairy tales and had great classroom discussions about whose side we were on. We even got the opportunity to write our own version of the Three Little Pigs. We also read a version of Red Riding Hood where the little girl is really a ninja who defeats the wolf with the help of her very fiesty ninja grandma. Of course, we had to talk about what powers we would use to defeat the wolf if he happened to visit our grandmas!
This week in Math we had so much fun learning about shapes. We started our week learning the differences between 2D and 3D shapes. We went on a shape hunt throughout the school and realized that shapes were all around us. We learned we can use terms like sides and vertices to describe and distinguish different shapes. We also enjoyed being chefs and making Shape Pizzas!
