Welcome to our home page. Check back here often to find out about things happening in our class and at our school!
Happy 2019! This month our focus will be on nonfiction topics such as arctic animals, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and states of matter (solids, liquids, & gases). This month's Word of the Month is Respect. In math we will finish up 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes and begin exploring addition. The main idea for students to understand is that addition means to join 2 parts together (1 part + another part = the whole). There are fun math games coming home that will allow students to practice these concepts in a fun way. Our focus for writing this month will be writing detailed sentences that help the reader to paint a picture in the mind. Conventions such as starting sentences with a capital letter, spacing between words, spelling sight words correctly, and ending with appropriate punctuation will be expected. Students will continue to participate in a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) challenges. So far they've built spider webs to hold a moving spider, bridges to allow a car to drive over water, a structure to keep out the wind, and a safe place for a gingerbread man to hide.
