This week we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday as well as St. Patrick’s Day!
In reading, we read a story called, “Mama’s Birthday Present.” We practiced reading and writing long “a” words that are made with “ai” and “ay.” We also learned about the possessive “s”. For example, if the mitten belongs to Anne, it would be “Anne’s mitten.”
In math we have been adding and subtracting groups of ten from two digit numbers. We started by using cubes and a place value mat, then we solved problems using a hundreds chart. Some of us are able to add and subtract tens in our head now!
In social studies, we have been talking about the difference between goods and services. We can name many goods and services that we can buy in our community.
In science, we continued to work in our water journal. We asked the question whether or not objects would sink or float. We worked in groups, made predictions and then experimented with different objects. We learned that objects that float weigh less that the water pushing against it. To continue with our water unit, we will soon be learning about the ocean. On March 27th, we will be visited by a marine biologist. She always brings many ocean animals that live in a tide pool. We can’t wait!
