Readers' Theatre! We read and performed fairy tale plays in class! A fun and enriching way to practice our reading!
Random Acts of Kindness! This week has been all about being kind and recognizing kindness in others!
Visit from Liberty Science Center! We had a very cool visit from the Liberty Science Center to enrich our Weather Unit in Science. See below.
Random Acts of Kindness
We are also sharing some of the ways that we've been kind at home. It's wonderful to see the children really paying attention to the small things we do for each other... and showing real appreciation. :)
We hope this has also helped make your holidays a little brighter at home!
This week we took a break from our reading groups to read some fairy tale plays. The children were each assigned to a play and a part within that play to read. They read through the play first by themselves, and then with their groups. They even had a chance to make a few costumes with construction paper! They had so much fun performing for each other! They read loudly and clearly and they read with inflection and feeling. We were SO proud of them!!
Our final project was to draw a character from our Fairy Tale play and cite a trait and evidence of that trait.
Our next unit will start after the break - Multiplication and Division.
Science! Social Studies!
As a culminating project in class, the students worked in pairs or small groups to complete a weather poster. They chose one of our topics and then drew a picture/diagram and related facts. They also incorporated a fairy tale character into their drawing! They are hanging outside the classroom!
Social Studies: We started our new social studies unit - Communities! We are learning what makes a community (places where people work, play and live) and designing our own communities! The students are working hard to create a large scale drawing complete with streets, arenas, movie theaters, and animal shelters.
