Magical Learning at IES!
March 2-6, 2020
What we learned and little bit about we will learn...
Students listened to a story and acted it out. They learned about comparing objects and vocabulary to use when comparing objects. We also discussed compound words and came up with them together. In math we introduced the tape measure. Solved a measurement problem and measured cubes using yarn.
In reading we are comparing and contrasting fiction and nonfiction books about Bears. We have also been reading the series of books that go with Bear Snores On. In math to go along with our 3D shapes, students have been bringing items from home that are similar to the 3D shapes to get a real life experience to associate the shapes with.
