I wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope you all have a wonderful Tet break.
Playing with our Discovery Buddies today.
This week we focused on measuring for accuracy and choosing the most appropriate tool to measure with. We also discussed measurement vocabulary such as length, width, height and connected vocabulary such as widen, tall and long.
Math Blast: Each week during a part of our math sessions we continue to consolidate our knowledge of subtraction, addition, counting, place value and word problems using Math Talks and math games. We are really becoming experts with our use of numbers to 20 and using many math strategies.
In reading we have looked at the many types of fiction genre. We sorted our class library into different fiction categories such as realistic, fantasy, poems, science fiction, historical, traditional and many more.
Using these categories in writing we selected a topic such as a “cold day” and thought of the title of a story we could write in each category. For example in fantasy we thought of “The Talking Snowman” and realistic fiction, “The Stolen Coat”.
We chose one of the titles and wrote a beginning, middle and ending supported by an appropriate drawing (visual literacy).
We now are creating more story ideas on our own topics.
