What We Learned:
This week we finished up our fraction topic by making a fraction friend and describing it and a "write around the room" activity. We also began reviewing place value (ones, tens, hundreds). We practiced adding hundreds flats and 100 more and less.
We explored different versions of Jack and the Beanstalk and learned what fractured fairy tales are. We worked in our new book clubs and discussed the different versions of the tale. We looked at the reader's theatre script for our tales.
This week we have been busy editing our last few pieces and are beginning to publish our favorite one.
We have learned many fascinating facts about our solar system. We have talked about the sun, moon, rotate, revolve, orbit, and the four inner planets. Ask your child to tell you the names of the inner planets and a fact about each one. Next week we will learn about the outer planets.
