We LOVE Friday!

Last Friday was Valentine’s Day and we had fun celebrating all day! First, each reading group performed a game style reader’s theater for the class. Then for writing we wrote silly stories by using adjectives that our candy hearts dropped on. During math we graphed the colors of our candy hearts. Who knew learning could taste so good!

Football Friday

We had a fun time Friday dressing in sports shirts and playing football games. To end our day, we had teams throw a mini football into a basket and count how many times they made a basket in one minute.

Can you figure out how to only move 2 crayons and still have a field goal with the ball (eraser) on the outside of the field goal??? We did!

Reader’s Theater

We had fun last week practicing a reader’s theater in groups. This type of reading helps with fluency and expression. After making a few signs and props we performed them for our class on Friday. Each group had a surprise for someone in their story and it gave clues for what is was. The class tried to guess the surprise by being a good audience and listening to the clues. There are some very mighty fine actors in our class!

Having fun with reader’s theater

A few weeks ago we were learning about Plains Native Americans. Each reading group practiced a reader’s theater telling facts and information about the Plains. Then we performed them for each other using popsicle stick puppets. It was fun!

Nov. 11 news

It was really nice to meet everyone last week during conferences. It goes so fast! Thanks again for making time to come in and chat. Click on our newsletter to read about our week.

I have posted some pictures from our fun Pumpkin Investigation. We measured our pumpkins, weighed them, and counted the ribs and seeds. After all that, we noticed when pumpkins have more ribs on the outside, they usually have more seeds on the inside. We read that in a book and were curious if our pumpkins would prove it. Yes, they did! For every rib on the outside there should be a row of seeds on the inside. Interesting!

This was our wear Red Day the other week for keeping our bodies healthy. ( I tried to do a selfie)
