Reading: In Reading, we finished our first chapter book read aloud of Frog and Toad All Year Long. Students focused on keeping track of who is talking by following along with the dialogue. Students also learned some strategies for solving tricky words by looking for patterns.
Math: In Math, students learned how we organize data and how to read data. We learned about picture graphs, bar graphs, and tally charts. Students learned how to find the median in a set of data and what the median usually means.
Writing: In writing, we continued with our nonfiction writing unit. Students have chosen their topics for nonfiction writing and have started gathering facts about their topics. They have practiced looking for words to add to their writer's dictionary.
Social Studies : To introduce the difference in other cultures, we discussed Halloween and its cultural significance. Students were then introduced to Dia de Los Muertos, a holiday celebrated in Mexico and other countries in Central America. Students were able to identify the cultural components of Dia de Los Muertos and create a creativity related to the holiday.
