The children learned about our current and past presidents and we learned about maps and their uses in Social Studies. We worked on adding and subtracting ten with various numbers using our number grids, dice, dry erase markers, and white boards. Students started learning about telling time in Math.
The class learned about why cats "purr" and about ducks and their ducklings in Science. We worked on writing book reviews in Writing. We finished Unit 8 in Fundations and took our unit test. We continued to gain different experiences with letters, words, sentences, and literature.
Students took part in their Specials: Art, Music, Library, and P.E. We didn't have Computers this week since we have that on our "B" Days. This was a C, D, E, and A week. The kids also enjoyed Recess, Lunch, and Snack. We finished up our chapter book, The One Hundred Penny Box and started a new one, Speed Racer and The Mammoth Car.
The kids are SO excited because we set up the class incubator yesterday afternoon. We will be getting our eggs this next week and begin learning about our chicks that we will be waiting to see hatch in the next month.
Have a super weekend! Mrs. Julie Zimmermann
