Research, Word Problems, & Text Features
This Thursday was full of learning that s t r e t c h e d our brains! We got to spend some time on the Chromebooks today to help us publish our personal narratives and research our animals for our project. We have several students who have finished their diorama projects and brought them to school to display. You have until Monday, October 26 to bring those to school! We will complete the Google Slides here at school.
In reading, we filled out the Reptile Web in our field journals. Then, we went on a Text Feature Scavenger Hunt in our little readers. We have been learning how text features help us understand a non-fiction book better. We can use photos and captions, charts, and diagrams to illustrate what we are reading about. The table of contents tells us which chapters are in the book and what pages we can find them on. Bold words in a story are typically important words, and we can find out what they mean in the glossary.
In math, we took our times test! We can tell some of you have been practicing, because you did even better this week than you did last week! Don't forget to practice your flashcards at home and listen to the songs if these tests are tough for you. Multiplication is just skip-counting!
Then, we worked on solving word problems with grams, kilograms, liters, and milliliters. These were kinda tricky, but it helps when we draw pictures! Before we knew it, it was time to head home! But not before we picked new flexible seating for next week.
Enjoy your 3-day weekend. See you on Monday!
