Reading: This week we worked on sequencing key events in stories. We read several great books, and we used time order words to help us to retell what happened. We had such great stamina this week that we got to enjoy Flashlight Friday!
Writing: This week we wrote two opinion pieces. Our first writing piece was about our opinions about Winter. The second writing piece went along with our social studies market day project. We wrote a persuasive piece to convince others why they should purchase the products we made.
Social Studies: Market Day preparation is in full swing! Each of the classroom businesses have been hard at work. They created names for their businesses, prototypes, and finally products. On Wednesday, we will open our stores to the a third grade class. The third graders will get to shop at our stores, and it should be a lot of fun!
Math: Three digit addition is the topic of our current math chapter. We began this chapter with reviewing how to add hundreds mentally, and then we will begin practicing how to add these larger numbers with regrouping.
