HW: First in Math-I'll be checking the standings on Tuesday. Will you be ready?!
Stations: We thought convergently with two different logic puzzles. Then we worked our critical thinking skills with our Weighty Word definitions, sentences, and synonyms. We stretched our creative thinking by writing letters to thank our soldiers serving our country.
Focus Study: We tried a new way of doing research today with a game called "BUZZ!" The kids rotated among different stations to find the answers to questions. They liked it and are looking forward to a more advanced version of the activity next time! We learned a lot about stars! ***Also, check out the full moon on Friday. It will be a partial eclipse.
Novel Study: We worked more on our book, Mixed Up Files. This time we concentrated on reading closely to learn more about author's craft, specifically word choice. The children were expert at spotting many words the author chose to paint a detailed picture of the story in our minds. Super work, my budding authors! We finished chapter 3 and are SO eager to start the next chapter! Can't wait to read more next week!
