Goebbert's Field Trip

We had such a whirlwind of a week! The field trip was wet, but fun just the same! Here are a few pictures from the day!

Fun with Adjectives this week

This week we focused on learning about Adjectives. We read the book Spookley the Square Pumpkin after our trip to Goebbert's and then we created our own unique pumpkin. The class brainstormed adjectives to describe their pumpkin, sketched it, wrote about it, and then created their pumpkins. We also wrote adjectives about lollipops and adjectives about ourselves. It was a fun way to learn about describing words!! Click on the link to view some pictures of our adjective fun!

Math

As you may have noticed, we didn't do traditional math this week. With Columbus Day, the short week, and the field trip we didn't have our normal routine. Next week we will review the addition and subtraction strategies from Unit 2 and test. There will be less homework again next week. Please refer to your child's planner to see what HW is assigned. Each day your child will write down his/her HW and then receive a stamp for doing well during the day.
