Reading: In Reading, started Days With Frog and Toad as our read aloud. Students learned they can make great predictions with books that have familiar characters. We learned the skill of having evidence for predictions and students practiced the skill during literacy centers/teacher time. Lastly, students worked on their reading fluency and making sure it matches what is going on in the story.
Math: In Math, we finished off the unit with coin combinations and learning how to make change. Students learned strategies for making change such as the "Add up" strategy. Students finished off the week with the Unit 3 test. Tests will be given to the students next week after uploading results to Seesaw.
Writing: In writing, we continued with our nonfiction writing unit. Students have learned ways to organize their writing using a table of contents. Students also wrote the introduction to their nonfiction books. Some students also started writing the middle of their books.
Social Studies : This week we returned to our classroom town project for social studies. We talked about wants vs. needs and how we will meet our needs as explorers in a new land. Students identified resources we have in our land and the uses we have for the resources. We also planned what our first homes will look like and voted for our classroom town name. After counting the votes, our classroom town will be named Pheonixville!
