Our day began with independent literacy activities. This week, the students are reading and writing about George Washington Carver, reading non-fiction about where food comes from, and retelling the story of Stone Soup.
During math, we are working with the concept of 1/2 of a unit when calculating the area of a shape- in this case, the unit is a square, and 1/2 is a triangle.
During writing, we began to identify the features of print in "How To" books, such as pictures, supplies, and numbered instructions.
Finally, we experienced our first parent-led art lesson of the year. Thanks to Sitra, Dawn, Jean, Sharon, and Allison and to everyone who has committed to help in the coming weeks!
Wednesday is the day that I rush off to class at University of Portland since the term is beginning again. Thank you for all of your support for all of the learning we are doing each day!
Please bring permission slips if you have not..see you tomorrow!
