Thank you to Mrs. Pelletier, Hilario's mom, for coming in to teach us about Honduras. It was such a fact-filled and informative presentation. Mrs. Pelletier shared a slideshow with topics including currency, maps, landmarks, special places, soccer, Myan Ruins, foods, weather, and a very exciting phenomenon of raining fish in Yoro Honduras. Ask your child what they learned about Honduras.
*Practice with Geography reviewing Continents
* Children wrote a thank you letter to Mrs. Pelletier sharing with her a couple of things that they learned.
*Writer's notebook - writing weekend memories
*Inquiry research project: Children choose a topic to research. This week, they filled in the K and W and began gathering books and information.
*Children illustrated their poems to share with Grandfriends next Friday.
Enjoy some photos of our Honduras presentation. Thank you, Mrs. Pelletier!
*Children looked through their learning portfolio to see growth and reflect on their learning. They followed that with filling in an April Questionnaire about their learning, goals, and challenges.
* Readers' Theater: children practiced, gathered props, and will present their story to their classmates.
*In Math we began working with fractions. Children are enjoying the fraction unit.
We have discussed...
*Identifying whether or not parts are divided equally
*Read, write, and identify unit fractions for thirds, fourths, and half
*Showing fractions and wholes using model drawings
*Comparing fractions. Identifying greater denominator means less.
*Applying > and < signs to fractions
