what's happening this week:
Math: problem solving - 2 steps
Shades of meaning (words with similar meaning) and continuing with prefixes.
Word work: r influenced vowels sort 25 (vocabulary words)
~ Fairy Tales / Folk tales
We will be comparing and contrasting a few different versions of Little Red Riding Hood this week. (we will use these stories and data in small groups as well as independently)
Science: Shadows. We created shadow sticks last week. We used our Math standard of measurement to measure the shadows at various times of the day. We will continue this week with another shadow experiment - if the sun comes out!
~ We are briefly discussing the phases of the moon in class. I am sending home an observation sheet for them to observe the moon nightly and record what they see on the form. They can keep them somewhere safe at home to record or keep them in their orange folders. Up to you! We will chart this daily in class as well.
Writing: Opinion Writing - sun's position and shadows
Have a great week!
