bringing literature to life!
We also revisited verbs, this time looking at the endings that help identify is something is happening now (-ing) or if it happened in the past (-ed). Many of the students still display difficulty focusing on endings in their reading so I believe this will help.
We took a closer look at telling time this week. The students began reading a digital clock and transferring that to an analog clock. To do this we learned that each hour around the clock represents 5 minutes so to tell the minutes we simply count by 5s. For example, an analog clock that has the hour hand pointing to the 3 and the minute hand pointing to the 7 does not mean the time is 3:7, instead it is 3:35.
We will have our unit 6 assessment on Monday and begin unit 7 next Tuesday.
Next week we will focus on the seasons fall and summer and begin to look at severe weather, specifically floods and blizzards.
March 28th also marks the end of quarter 3.
