This week in reading, we read a story called “Peter’s Chair,” by Ezra Jack Keats. It was about a little boy who had to give all of his old things to his new baby sister and he didn’t like it! We learned about compound words like “rainbow” and “mailbox” and read words with the long “u” sound like “flew,” “blue,” and “juice.”
In math, we have been telling time on the hour and half hour. We have also been learning about graphs. We can create pictographs and bar graphs using real data and also get information from graphs.
In social studies we have been talking about workers, factories and machines. We also learned the difference between a seller and a buyer. Have a wonderful vacation next week!
This week we had a little fun with April Fools Day disguises. I’m not sure who these kids are?? 🙂
This week in reading, we read a story called, “Mr. Bones, Dinosaur Hunter.” It was a non-fiction book about the archeologist that discovered the T-Rex. We practiced long “o” and long “e” words. We reviewed the difference between a nouns, verbs and an adjectives.
In math, we spend the week measuring length. We learned that we can measure with centimeters or inches with our ruler. We also learned that one ruler is about a foot.
We were also visited by a marine biologist. We learned about sea animals that live in the North Atlantic Ocean. We got to hold crabs, seastars, snails, sea urchins and lobsters!
In social studies, we have been talking about what things cost and why it is important to save money.
