January 22-26, 2018 Week 21

I'm so glad that we do not have freezing temperatures this week.  Hopefully we can finally get out to recess and RUN!
This week on Monday, A-Team will go to Sulphur Springs to the movies to see Paddington 2.  Students need a sack lunch and 2 drinks.  Please put lunch in a plastic or paper bag.  No lunchboxes.  We will leave at 8:15.

This week our reading story is "Frog and Toad Together."  It is animal fantasy about a frog and toad that can talk and do things that people do.  Our reading skills are to add endings with inflectional ending -ed, -ing; identify author's purpose; past and present tense verbs; r-controlled vowels; and practice Saxon Phonics.  

In Math we will continue to practice identifying the name and value of coins.  We will count like and mixed coins using the hairy money strategy.  Here is an example of the "hairy money" strategy...

                                  We sorted coins 

In Science we will investigate the natural world of "Soil."
We will learn what makes up soil and things that depend on soil to live like plants, animals, and people.

In Social Studies we will discuss historical figures George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.  We will learn about their contributions to society and make a timeline of their life.  We will also make a timeline of important events in our life, from birth to now.

Jan 22 ~ A-TEAM field trip to movies
Jan 29 ~ 100th Day of School 
Jan 31 ~ TPRI testing
Feb 14 ~ Valentine Party

We are one busy class!

                                             We explored the natural world of "rocks."  
                                                These are some of our  rock creations!

In STEM...
We made snowballs and learned about the structure of a snowflake!

Thanks for dropping in to see what we are learning!  We'll see you same time next week!  Have a wonderful warmER week!
