Weekly Wrap Up

This week in Math, we finished our measurement unit. We worked on comparing items as longer or shorter, heavier or lighter, and more or less capacity. Later this spring we will revisit measurement and use a ruler and inches, rather than cubes to measure length. We used a scale and cubes to compare weight and also measure how many cubes heavy items are.

Math test scores should be posted on the parent portal by the end of the weekend. Next week, we will begin place value with numbers 11-19. Students need to be able to break the number 11 into a group of 10 and 1. We will be using tens frames again and also exploring with base 10 blocks.

In Science, we learned about animal habitats. We wrote a definition as a class, and learned about desert, forest, and pond habitats. They drew a picture each day showing the habitat. I was SO impressed with their illustrations!! They did such a lovely job.

Next week, we are going to learn about life cycles for different animals.

In Reading, we worked with bossy e this week. They picked it up pretty quickly, and I am impressed! We are doing a lot of reading, and they are becoming more confident every day. Next week, we are going to work with ch and sh.
