In class we have been reading and writing informational text.
One thing we noticed is that informational text often has unique features.
We enjoyed exploring text and finding these text features.
In Math we are learning about teen numbers.
Our favorite math video right now is Numbers in the Teens Have a Group of Ten!
We practiced making teen numbers with one group of ten and then adding the extra ones. As we lined it up we could see the pattern and began to understand it a bit more. Some students even tried making two or three digit numbers by making groups of ten and then adding the extra ones.
As you know our class has been collecting supplies to make a variety of creations and inventions out of craft supplies and recyclables. What you sent in as "junk" came back as something "precious"! Thank you for your support. As part of our Force and Motion studies students were challenged to make a marble mover. They were amazing inventors, collaborators, critical thinkers and problem solvers. They made plans, executed their plans and changed them to solve problems along the way. You can see your student share their invention on Seesaw.
Here are a few class highlights:
We often start our day with a video or a read aloud book while waiting for everyone to get to school. Sometimes we use it as a brain break and other times during indoor recess or as we pack up for the day. I promised them I would send a few favorites to you so they can watch them at home. One of them is the math one posted above-here are a few others. Enjoy!
