Last week we worked on 3 letter blends blends. We are trying to work on sounding out an “str..” blend word combing those three sounds like str, spl, spr, scr in the word as one chunk for fluency practice, instead of separately; such as /spl/ /ash/ for splash. While we were reading informational text, we were identifying key details that will help us identify the author’s purpose and why he wrote what he did.  In Writing Workshop we began our animal research papers.  We had the help of moms on Monday and 5th grade on Tuesday to collect and write facts.  We worked on getting our details into sentences on Wednesday and Thursday, along with editing.  With the help of our homeroom moms, we have all the information typed and into books.  Our next step will be illustrations!

Math/Science/Social Studies

In Math we are working in Module 4. We are working on writing and completing number sentences for number stories to 10. Keep up with daily math homework. These short activities reinforce our daily work in class and solidifies the foundations the children will need later in the year and next year in math.  In Science we began to look at what animals need to live with an investigation on our pets, looking to make connections to what all of our pets needed.   In Social Studies we continued to talk about laws we needed to follow.
