We just love when big siblings come and read to our class!
Our Valentine's Day party was a huge success! Thanks to all who made it possible!
Thanks to Addi's mom (and little sister) who were our Mystery Readers this week!
In Reading we began breaking down our play, discussing it's characters, setting and brainstorming how we'll begin to set up and practice for our play in March! We continued to look at a variety of sources when it comes to research and tied this into our non-fiction writing. We focused in on our characters when reading our thematic Valentine's Day stories this week and had fun comparing stories.
In Math we reviewed shapes, measurement and began to look at money/coins! We loved sorting all our money we've been collecting for Pennies for Patients! We've got well over $130!
In Writing we started non-fiction stories about an artic animal of our choosing. Towards the end of the week, students began a free-write story. This means it could be about anything they wanted!
New Sight words: zero, one, two
Next week: three, four, five, six (feel free to start practicing over the long weekend!)
