Week 19

It was so great to have a full week of school. We enjoyed playing in the snow at recess as well! Please make sure that your child has snow pants and boots EVERYDAY.

Here are some highlights of the week.
Language arts:
  • we explored nonfiction text features. 
  • we practiced fluency with "The Three Bears" reading. We met with Mrs. Langus's class from Portland, Oregon via Google Hangout to read together. 

  • we continued working on writing about small moments in our lives. We are practicing to use interesting words in our writing.
  • we wrote a fiction story about snowman. Some of us published it on the blog.
  • we worked on fact families.
  • we solved a story problem.
  • we collected data on a Venn Diagram and interpreted the data.
  • we explored more on solids, liquids, and gases.
  • Charles, the Dickinson County Naturalist came and taught us about water cycle.
