What we are doing this week in class:
This week, we will be working on the -ed ending, which can say /t/, /d/ or the -ed sound. We will also be working on asking and answering questions in Non-Fiction text. In reading groups, we are working on different levels of fiction and nonfiction texts to reinforce previously taught skills.
Last week, we worked on revising our small moments by using revising strips, karets, and adding extra pages into our books. We have been talking about how "When you are done, you've just begun" and how adding details to our stories can make them more interesting.
In math, we are focusing on missing addends and story problems. We are playing games like "How Many am I Hiding" and "Counters in a Cup" to reinforce the concept of missing addend.
This week, we will learn about the different types of clouds in our Science unit. Last week, we wrapped up talk about thermometers and taking the temperatures.
This week, we will explore the world around us using Scholastic World News! We will be learning about people that make pumpkins into giant boats!
