We will always remember.
In Math, we are still looking at 2d shapes. We spend so much time looking at attributes of 2d shapes because it will be the foundation needed to move forward to 3d solids. Below, we used a Venn diagram to sort our figures. Ask your child what happens if a shape does not fit into either circle or in the overlapping circle?
We also explored what it means when shapes are congruent, similar or different than one another. Go on a shape hunt in your home to discover congruent or similar shapes.
In Science, we added new science vocabulary words into the files of our brains. Ask your child which student is showing an example of TENSION and COMPRESSION?
In Language, we continue to work on our DESCRIPTIVE WRITING unit. This week we spent time investigating similies. You will see examples of this in your child's homework book this week. The class has been exposed to many examples of descriptive read alouds. Soon, we will have our first opportunity to put all our good learning to use to create our first descriptive writing task.
