Another Great Week!

Last week was another productive week. Second and third grade students both finished their first unit of study. The new unit for second grade is entitled Life Cycles. We will learn about the life cycles of several animals. We will create a non-fiction text about an insect of our choice. This text will be created using, an online text creating tool.

Third grade's new unit is entitled "Eat This, Not That". We will learn about nutrients and how they benefit the body. Third grade students will also create a nonfiction book about the six essential nutrients, what it takes to be healthy, and what can happen to our bodies if we have unhealthy eating habits. We will use Little Bird Tales as well.

Little Bird Tales is a free interactive story-website that allows your child to put their voice and illustrations to text. We will use this site several times throughout the year. Students must first create their book by taking notes, creating an outline, and writing a rough draft. We must take our books through the six stages of writing before we create online versions.
