Today the class continued to learn about the parts of a story. Today we learned about the setting. We had a scavenger hunt with my friend Roscoe to figure out where his setting was. Then we got a sweet treat at the end. The students then came up with their own setting. They had to answer the questions where and when for their setting.
In math the students are starting to learn about money. The class learned about the penny today. Ask them who and what is on the penny! We did a penny maze to help us identify this coin.
Today we discussed what part of the plant you eat when you eat certain fruits and vegetables. We watched this you tube to help us understand this concept. Please check your child’s backpack. Each child was assigned a certain plant for our PLANT PARTY on Friday, May 19th! Thanks for continued support. Have a great weekend!
