Degrees and Certifications:
February is a busy month! We have a lot of exciting things happening in our classroom.
We are continuing our non-fiction reading and writing units. In reading, the children have been working hard retelling using the keyword in a section of a non-fiction book. I hope you enjoyed viewing the children’s recordings on flipgrid! The children are excited to begin our non-fiction book clubs. They will read across many books on the same topic in book clubs. They will compare and contrast information as they discuss and answer questions. They will also learn to deepen their conversational skills. In writing the children are learning to add non-fiction features to their Expert Pieces which will help teach about their topic in an interesting way.
In math, we will move onto Unit 4, word problems using bar models. The bar models we will study are; part-part-whole and comparison. We will learn to use bar models while solving addition, subtraction, and two- part word problems! Next, we are beginning our geometry unit where we will learn the attributes of solid and plane shapes.
In Science, we are continuing our Changes to Land Unit. We studied maps, we noticed how maps are alike, how they are different, and asked ourselves, “Why do we use maps?”. We just made a model of mountains, noticing how river flow. Next, we will examine how water and wind impact land.
