What did we learn this week?

Reading: "Exploring Fall" We completed our informational research on what trees, animals, ad people do in the fall. We shared what we learned by completing a Exploring Fall book that the students took home today.

Writing: The students are becoming experts in our writing process. Many of them are writing lines to represent words and hearing beginning and ending sounds while spelling our HFW correctly.

Phonics: We continued working on beginning sounds and learned a new website called "Kahoot" which allowed the students hear a question and, as a pair, they were able to choose the correct answer on their iPads and see it pop up on the SmartBoard.

Math: PATTERNS! PATTERNS! PATTERNS! We learned all about patterns and how to recognize and create them. We also began our pattern book on Book Creator that will be on Seesaw soon!
