What We're Up To...
Reading- We have been talking about how fiction and nonfiction texts are different. This week, students will start making a book of nonfiction text features with examples we find in books and magazines. Students will also create a text feature for a class book about monarch butterflies. During read aloud, we are working on identifying the characters and setting.
Writing- Writing is all about the ability to describe an event or image. This week, we will begin a focus on descriptive writing by describing pictures and the life cycle of monarch butterflies.
Math- Last week, students made 3-D graphs showing the years their pennies were made. We'd learned that pennies made before 1982 are actually worth 2 cents because they are made mostly of copper. We are now focusing on combinations of ten. Soon, students will bring home some games that will help with their math facts fluency.
