Weekly Wrap Up

We've had a busy couple of weeks!

In Reading, we have started learning chunks to help us be more successful decoding. So far we know sh, ch, and th. We also have learned some r controlled vowels - or, ar, ir, ur, and er. We started some long vowel pairs this week as well - ee and ea. This week we are going to be focusing on bossy e at the end of words to make the vowel say its name. Here's a song we will be singing this week.

In Math, we are working on measurement. Students need to be able to compare objects as longer or shorter, taller or shorter, and having more or less capacity. We have been using cubes to help us measure with nonstandard units. We are going to work with inches before the end of the year. We compared the height of a rocket, glue stick, straw and marker.

 In Science, we learned about plants. We learned they need light, water, soil and air. We labeled different parts and we even got to plant some seeds! My dad is a horticulturist and came to teach us about seeds and help us plant.

This week, we are going to learn about animal habitats, and of course, watch our seeds begin to sprout!
