Reading: This week we read the Pig the Pug series. We reviewed how to read with expression and clarifying vocabulary. The students also started meeting in their book clubs.
Writing: During writing, we continued to work on poetry. We wrote a sensory poem, an acrostic poem, and a couplet poem. We also spent some time working on a top secret special gift. :)
Math: This week we began our last math chapter which focuses on geometry. We practiced identifying plane shapes by comparing their attributes. So far we have learned about: triangles, circles, squares, rectangles, trapezoids, parallelograms, hexagons, and pentagons. Below you can find some pictures of a few students playing a strategy game called Sliders.
Science: Our animal habitat projects are coming along nicely, and we are planning to finish those projects up next week. Next week we will also begin our final social studies unit which is all about economics.
