Mrs. Coleman's Weekly News!
This week we created acrostic poems using the word spring, everyone did a great job listing spring words, and finding words for their poem using class dictionaries. They also wrote rainy day stories, and read them to their partners. Everyone chose the leader they wanted for our 21st century board project and completed writing their facts. We read books about each leader, and watched short clips on them. Afterwards they wrote sentences about the person of their choice. They were able to choose from (Obama, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King and George Washington, to complete the project they typed their sentences in Technology class and chose pictures from clip art to print.
Math centers included number talk of 14 and 41, subtraction flashcards with dry erase boards and number cards 10-30 with base ten blocks and magnet boards. Everyone did well working with their partners to complete centers and worked together.
This week in Social Studies, we focused on the four leaders for our project. We discussed what it means to be a leader, and what traits leaders have. Our chicks have hatched! Unfortunately we only have two chicks, but everyone is enjoying the two we have.
