Mrs. Beckstrand wasn't here today to have counseling time...so we got to have FREE TIME! It's such a treat to just have some time to relax and kick back with our friends.
We also learned about main ideas. We decided that the main idea of this book is the different kinds of animal babies that live in the grasslands.
And we learned all about grasslands. Did you know that there are grasslands in Nebraska AND in Africa?
Mrs. McCallay was sick today, so she stayed home. Mrs. Bockmann was her substitute today. It seems like there is starting to be a lot of tummy "yuck" and respiratory junk going around. Remember to get plenty of rest and drink lots of water...that helps to keep our bodies in top performance.
We looked inside Mrs. Chohon's "p" bag and found lots of things that start with the letter p. We wrote the names of all those things on the board and circled every "p" we could find.
In science, we have been talking about the things plants need to live and how they grow. Today we discussed what ANIMALS need to live and how they look very much like their parents when they are born and as they grow up.
We are bringing home a new decodable story. It is called "Pat the Cat". If your child reads it 3 times to you or someone else, sign it and send it back to school. They will get a prize from the prize box since the book has new words!
So far we have learned these words:
Look at our seeds!
Lookin' Forward to Next Week!
