Hello friends and Happy Monday! I hope you've had a GREAT start to your week! We got to start CONTENT today...meaning, we learned from each of the core subjects: Reading, Writing, Math, and Science. Today, we also welcomed a new friend: the very beautiful Miss Emilee! She comes to us from Stonewall Elementary and we are so very excited she is here!
We are learning about parts of speech. Today, we reviewed NOUNS. We watched a "SchoolHouse Rock" video about nouns and reviewed that they describe a person, place, or thing.
It will take several weeks to learn all of the processes and roles of our reading groups, schedule, and reading rotations. Today, we learned about what "Guided Reading" will look like and began studying the concept of Literary Elements present in a fictional story starting with characters and setting by reading the story, Akiak from our reading textbook. Akiak is a story about a determined and courageous dog who never gave up and led her team to victory in the Iditarod race held annually in Alaska. Students completed a graphic organizer by filling in descriptions of the characters and setting.
Ms. Frederick came and started talking with the students about classifying organisms and the meaning of the word, "classify".
We are learning about PLACE VALUE! All numbers can be and should be classified and identified according to place-value. Due to excessive talking, we DO HAVE HOMEWORK (see below)
HOMEWORK: WORKBOOK pages 1 AND 2.
I hope you have an excellent evening with your loved ones. I sure love you!
PS, Have you turned in your money for your planner or a note saying you need the fee waived?!?
