Language Arts:We have completed our Fundations program. We wrote sentences; practiced high frequency words;
wrote unit words; worked with digraphs; and worked on identifying long and short vowels.
Writing: we wrote our last portfolio piece--Which season do you like best, and why? Everyone did an excellent job writing and supporting their opinion.
We read our Nursery Books we made in the Fall.
We worked on number sense; place value; counting to 100; counting on from a given number; addition and subtraction within 5; solving and writing word problems from our number corner;
reviewing shapes including 3-D shapes.
We learned about plants and what they need to grow. We planted seeds and observed bean, and sunflower seeds grow into plants.
We learned about rocks, observed and experimented with rocks that Hannah Putnam from VINS shared with us. We noticed one rock was magnetic; pumice was the lightest rock; coal was shiny; we could write with one on a piece of tile; and quartz was transparent. We collected a rock from outside, and wrote a report about our rock.
We also learned about the animals that live in the ocean. We made a book based on a song Down By The Sea. We read about each animal, added animals to our book, and did a craft project of the animal. We celebrated our ocean unit with Ocean Day. We had nine stations, and a special snack.
We went to see Curious George and the Golden Meatball. It was a musical and a great performance.
We will celebrate Field Day on Wednesday.
