Science: This week the students were busy little scientists! They added clay to their prehistoric animal skeletons to make them look like a more realistic model. They also designed and constructed a new tool that a paleontologist could use. Once their prototype was finished they tested them out to see how well they would work. Check out the pictures below!
Reading: This week we read several great books including: Shortcut, A Color of His Own, and What Ruby Shared. The main skills that we worked on were using strategies to solve tricky words, and we also practiced making predictions.
Writing: Our personal narratives are coming along nicely. This week we focused on making our stories longer and stronger by adding more details. We also reviewed strategies for writing a strong conclusion.
Math: Throughout chapter 2 we are learning about the following topics:
- even and odd numbers
- number patterns
- repeated addition
