Greetings from Room 116!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!! Here are some highlights from our busy week:
ELA: We continued to practice reading comprehension strategies within our historical fiction book groups, while examining how good writers establish character, plot, mood, and theme. During Writer’s Workshop, we wrote sequels to Cynthia Rylant’s The Relatives Came and created cinquain cloud poems. In Spelling, we reviewed double-consonant spelling patterns.
Math: We explored the attributes of various geometric shapes, including angles, vertices, sides, and perimeter.
Science/SS: We learned more about the water cycle and conducted several experiments regarding evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. We also created cloud posters demonstrating four major cloud formations (stratus, cumulus, cumulonimbus, and cirrus).
Other: We worked on our Extreme Weather projects in Library/Technology and worked on math concepts with Zearn.
Best wishes to all for a lovely weekend!
P.S. Remember to read and practice facts always!
