Reading: In Reading this week we talked about using pictures and text to make inferences. We finished reading Days With Frog and Toad and talked about the similiarities and differences with Frog and Toad All Year. Students practiced their reading fluency and making inferences during literacy centers.
Math: In Math, we started our new unit on addition and subtraction. Our focus this week was on "change to more" number stories and "part-part-total" number stories. Toward the end of the week we talked about temperature and practicing "change to more" number stories with changes in temperature.
Writing: In writing, we continued with our nonfiction writing unit. Students started writing the middle of their books. We talked about adding adjectives, comparisons, adverbs, and transition words to their writing.
Science : Our focus question in science this week was "How are seeds dispersed in nature?" Students learned about the different ways seeds are dispersed such as through wind, water, animal fur and digestion, gravity, explosion, and many more. Students worked with a group to create a poster that displays the methods we discussed in class.
