Content

In science right now we are learning about weather. This week our focus was on the water cycle. Next week we are moving on to specific kinds of weather like tornadoes, snowstorms, and hurricanes.


In social studies have been learning about maps. This past week we learned how to read a compass rose, a map scale and how to navigate a map using those two tools.

Math

We just started our measurement unit in math. We used a ruler to estimate and measure. We are also learning about liquid measurement: gallons, quarts, pints and cups. We have been applying what we know about these units of measure by solving real word math problem. Next week we will focus on liters and milliliters.

Literacy

Our new unit of study in literacy is fairy tales. We have been learning about the structure of a fairy tale and are starting to write our very own! In addition, we are comparing and contrasting different versions of fairy tales to help us to grow in our understanding.
