Greetings from Room 116!
It appears that we are in for a long winter, according to Punxsutawney Phil. Nevertheless, we will be going outside for recess whenever possible, so thank you for making sure that students are appropriately dressed.
Meanwhile, inside our classroom, we are keeping very busy:
ELA: We discussed how characters evolve and change over time in our realistic fiction book groups. We also examined the importance of setting in our community book Babe, the Gallant Pig. In addition, we studied “schwa” spelling patterns, along with additional verb tense grammar rules.
Math: We calculated the area of compound shapes in several different ways.
Science/SS: We created alliterative food chain posters. We also expanded our understanding of Pilgrim life, while adding to our 2-column notes.
Other: We continued our engineering projects in Library and worked on Google Docs, Zearn, and Study Island during Technology.
Best wishes for successful Super Bowl weekend. Go Pats!!!
P.S. Remember to always read and practice math facts!!!
