Peek at the Week

We have had a great week! I can't believe how fast September is moving!

In Literacy, we have started reading Frog and Toad are Friends. We discussed what it means to be a good friend and we enjoyed reading "Spring" and "The Story" in the book so far. The students really enjoy them! We also have been learning about nouns and verbs. We used puzzles with a partner to find nouns and verbs. It was really fun!

In Math, we used magnifying glasses to examine real coins and talk about the values of each coin.
We learned how to play Collect 25 cents with a partner too. We also worked on counting by having "Pocket Day" and we wrote numbers on counting strips.

In Science, we have been continuing to learn about amphibians. We read about frogs and toads and did a fun Venn Diagram activity to compare them. We also received some special toads from the Science Center. It was very exciting!

In Social Studies, we learned about schools from the past in the United States and how they differ from the schools today. We even learned about how one school in South Korea uses a robot to teach students english. That was very interesting.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to meeting you all on Thursday night 9/27.
