Greetings from Room 116!
What a whirlwind this week has been. We have been very busy, as you can see:
ELA: We studied the i/igh (long i sound) spelling pattern, and focused on grammar rules for possessive nouns. We also examined character development in our realistic fiction book groups.
Math: We learned about weight measurements (grams/kilograms) and liquid capacities (milliliters/liters).
Science/SS: We did a jigsaw reading of The True Book of the Wampanoags and created posters to teach others. We also added to our replica village.
Other: During Computers, we wrote codes to create LEGO game. We also practiced mindful movement during Calmer Choice.
We ended the week with a variety of holiday activities and class viewing of “Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer”!!
Best wishes for a wintry weekend
*Please note that students should continue read 20-30 minutes nightly, in addition to practicing all math facts.
