Science: We continued our erosion science unit, and we learned about landforms. We created landforms out of salt dough, and next we will add color to make our models look more realistic. Throughout the next portion of this unit, we will talk about what landforms are made of, and we will observe and describe properties of the Earth's materials that make up landforms.
Reading: This week we participated in a virtual author visit with Laura Numeroff. She is the author of many great books including If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. We got to see some of her favorite books that she has written, and she shared how she gets ideas for many of her stories.
Writing: Our most recent opinion writing was all about which animal we think makes the best pet. Everyone generated an opinion along with three reasons and supporting details. This writing piece is currently displayed in our hallway, and they all turned out great!
Math: This week we wrapped up chapter 3. On Monday and Tuesday, we will be reviewing the key concepts of adding two-digit numbers, and our test will be next Wednesday.
