A Big Bite

The week after the Thanksgiving break was a busy one. We have accomplished a great deal in all academic areas. We have started two and three digit multiplication in math, and have finished our study of Canada. We spent a great deal of time learning how to read non fiction texts, and how to use the text features to improve our comprehension. We really liked learning how to read and use a timeline! The test on Canada will be next Friday. The Family Under the Bridge, by Natalie Savage Carlson, is our new interactive read aloud. Our skills for this book are "theme, cause/effect and summarizing." We are reviewing how to respond to open response questions and narrative elements. As a fun activity, we made stained glass menorahs with sharpies, plastic wrap and tin foil. Many of us are excited about Yoga on Monday Morning, Mrs. Merten is joining us!
