Math

This week in math students continued to explore with 2 and 3-dimensional shapes with the following activities: sorting shapes by number of sides, identifying and sorting different types of quadrilaterals, ordering rectangles, and building rectangles by solving riddles.

Reading

This week in reading we read a narrative nonfiction, Turtle Turtle Watch Out! We continued working on asking questions to be active readers and identified the main idea and key details in the text. The students constructed a life cycle of the turtle using the text and researched additional information on the stages they were curious about! We also started looking at the challenges the turtles faced in each stage of the life cycle. We will be using this information to write a paragraph!

Social Studies

This week in social studies we continued to discuss goods and services and the different forms of payment. We also compared games from the past and present using primary sources. The students began researching a famous American and will use this information to create a trading card.
