Students LOVED learning about fables this week. They have learned that fables should describe the setting of the story, be a short story, have animals or objects that talk and act like people, have dialogue, and teache a lesson.
Next week, we will shift gears over to Folktales. Folktales are longer, cultural stories that are passed down from generations. They can explain why things are the way they are. They also provide a moral or lesson.
Students will then have an opportunity to create their own book trailer through iMovie! They were able to practice iMovie in Learning Center with Miss Stefans; they were so inspired by the lesson! Soon, students will create a trailer for a fable, folktale, or fairytale and share it with you. We can't wait to see their creativity unfold!
We are finishing up Unit 2 with a review on money. They are doing really well with combining different coins together. We will be sending home an Unit 2 study guide on Monday. Please review the study guide with your child and please let us know if your child is struggling with any of the strategies.
Unit 3 will introduce geometry and measurement. They have been itching to get those little hands on those rulers! :-)
