Please look for your child’s update on the week in Seesaw today. We had an assembly with author and puppeteer, Kevin Kammeraad. It was interactive and fun!
A quick overview of our week: In reading we have wrapped up our character unit and are in nonfiction-research book clubs with the focus on animals. We have started by noticing what a researcher does and are beginning those steps. Many students are also reaching their reading goals they are making each week! It’s great to see!
In writing, we will begin All About books on a topic that each child already knows a lot about. We will go through the process of planning, organizing, revising, editing, and including tools that make our writing more detailed and interesting.
In math, we are about to wrap up our unit on measurement. We have worked on telling time to the nearest minute, elapsed time, and metric measurement of volume and mass. The math test will be before Spring Break begins. When we return, we will begin a unit on geometric figures.
In science we are learning about plants. I hope that your child did their homework–sharing with you the different plant parts and functions of them! 🙂 We also learned about photosynthesis and pollination. After Spring Break, we will begin investigating animal habitats and adaptations.
Next week is a 4 day week! Have a wonderful weekend!
