November 2, 2018 Day 53

Hello everyone!  We are back!  We have been super busy since our last post.  We just celebrated Red Ribbon Week, our first A-Team field trip, and the 50th day of school all last week!  WHEW! 

SHOUTOUT!  We had two friends earn 25 AR points.  Congrats to Troy and Lucas!  Outstanding job in reading!


 Lucas will get his shirt this week so picture coming soon!  

We had been reading Fountas & Pinnell Interactive Read Aloud books.  Some of the titles that we read this past month were Papa and Me, When the Relatives Came to Town, A Birthday Basket for Tia, Bob and Leon, Wallace's List, The Magic Rabbit, and lots more.  We have learned how to sequence story events; identify cause and effect; read contraction words and identify the two words that make a contraction; clap syllables in words; rhyme words, make inferences; discuss the author's purpose for writing a story and much more.  We are practicing writing complete sentences that start with a capital letter, correct spacing, appropriate punctuation, and correct sentence structure (make sure it makes sense).

In Math we worked on graphing; addition and subtraction; telling time to the hour; and this week place value to 99.

Science has been investigating forms of energy and discussing the forms of light, heat, and sound;  we've explored how magnets attract and repel other objects; and how objects move.

We will start our next unit of Social Studies by exploring customs, traditions, and celebrations.  We will learn about the past and compare celebrations, customs, and traditions to then and now.
