Weekly Wrap Up

We had a busy week! We have been working on subtraction. We took our test for the chapter today. I will have grades up by the end of the weekend. We did some fun review activities this week. We read Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons. Then, we used buttons to act out story problems. Finally, we matched number sentences to pictures.

We did one of my favorite science units this week - sound!
We learned about how sound is created by vibrations that create invisible sound waves that we hear. We used a balloon to help us see vibrations.

We explored with different instruments to see how to make and change sounds.

The best part was making our own shakers!

I asked them to draw a picture to explain how sound works. Their pictures are awesome!

We celebrated St. Patrick's Day this week. We learned about St. Patrick, leprechauns and pots of gold. We did some creative writing about hiding pots of gold. We also made stylish leprechaun hats.

A crochet club at the public library made hats for all the kids in Upper Sandusky. Your child probably came home with a new hat today! It is theirs to keep.
You also should have found your child's spring pictures today as well. If you want to purchase, you should send in money. If you don't want to keep, please send them back this week.
Have a wonderful weekend!
