Plot and Shapes

Today we discussed the last of the story elements: the plot. We talked about how this includes the beginning middle and end of the story. We used the story the Three Little Pigs to identify the story elements. Then we read a Piggy and Elephant story. We used a story rope to help us with the elements. We also sang a song !

In math we continued to talk about shapes. We learned how to identify a shape as having equal and unequal parts. This will eventually lead up to FRACTIONS! We finished the math lesson with a fun shape /build a robot game! REMINDER: BOOK EXCHANGE ON MONDAY. Your child will just be returning their books! NO NEW BOOKS!

Setting

Today the students continued to learn about story elements. We focused on the setting today. The class received a letter from my friend Roscoe. He had just taken a road trip and had stopped at many different places. He also gave the students clues to where he stopped. After reading the clues the students talked about where he stopped and when. The last stop was the candy store. Ask your child what Roscoe gave the students! Here is a youtube we also watched!

Finally today we discussed the elements of a story. We focused on characters today. We sorted different kinds of characters and came up with different settings and problems for our characters.

BRAG TAGS, VERBS, AND AWESOME ACTIVITY DAY

Today the students learned how to add two 2 digit numbers with and without regrouping. They are able to earn 1 or 2 brag tags if they complete the exit ticket for tomorrow. They only need to complete 2 of the problems but THEY MUST CHOOSE A STRATEGY and SHOW THEIR WORK! Here is the lesson if they need to refresh their memory!

The students also reviewed what a verb is. We played headbanz and then made super verb heroes to complete the lesson!

REMINDER:

TOMORROW IS AWESOME ACTIVITY DAY. Please wear sneakers and bring a water bottle. I would suggest putting your child’s name on the water bottle as well.
