Math...

Top Chefs have been adding up two numbers with dice. We rolled, added, found, and colored a picture to celebrate 100 days of school. We have begun our discussion about the Penny. Students are exploring the size, color, and how much it is worth. We are learning a poem to help us...Penny, Penny, easily spent, copper brown and worth one cent. Top Chef's also graphed Valentine hearts by color and sorted them into a bar graph. Ask your child which color hearts they had the most of :).

Literacy Groups...

Students have been busy moving through 3 stations daily. Word Study with Miss. Huckstep, Reading Groups with Miss. Kuznar, and the Independent Group where Top Chefs work on reinforcing skills previously explored. Students wrote and shared their writing about the topic...If I had $100.00 dollars I would? Some responses that were shared were, I would buy candy, toy's, car, stuffed animals, and to save it! We have also been reading and talking about Valentines Day, and enjoying books about Winter.

Content...

3 states of Matter...Solids, Liquids, and Gases are still being explored. Graphs and pictures are being created to discuss with partners and small groups. Top Chef's are also exploring President's day and Black History Month. In the upcoming week, students will write about what they would do if they were the President of the U.S.A. and illustrate pictures to go along with their words.
