This week we kicked off our government unit by watching a Kid President videohttp://youtu.be/4z7gDsSKUmU , and then answering questions on a graffiti wall that had the following questions:
1. If you were the President, what would you change in our country?
2. If you were the principal, what would you change in our school?
3. Why is it important to vote?
4. What is something that is unfair or unjust that you could change?
Next week the students will continue learning about our government. We will be focusing on sequencing events in our text. We will continue talking about the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and the Star Spangled Banner. At the end of the week, the students will be using what we have learned to write a classroom pledge, or declaration.
We will be reviewing how to write in complete sentences. The students will be locating the subject and predicate of a sentence, as well as, identifying the noun, verb, and adjectives in the sentence.
Writing a narrative will be our focus.
The students have worked hard on reviewing addition, writing story problems using key words, and rounding. Next week we will continue working on these skills, as well as, subtraction.
We will continue being good scientist by asking questions, forming a hypothesis, and learning about the scientific process.
