It’s Been a Busy Week!

In Language Arts we are working on expanding the childrens’ vocabulary.  Every week we introduce three new words and then encourage the children to use them throughout the week in their writing and speaking.  Our words this week were protect, imitate, and resemble.

 

Our sight words so far are I, A, go, at, to, am, me, see, can, is, red, blue, yellow, and green.

In math we worked with 3D shapes.  We identified the sphere, cone, cube, rectangular prism, and cylinder, and noticed which ones could roll and which could not.  We also discovered that some of the four shapes have faces – two have circle faces and some have square and/or rectangular faces.

Spanish – Stanfield

In Spanish class this week we talked about what Hispanic Heritage Month is and why it is celebrated. The children looked at a globe and we discussed the many countries around the world where Spanish is spoken.  We then watched a Brain Pop Jr. about Mexico after which we made a Mexican flag or bandera in honor of Cinco de Mayo.

Science – Manning

We learned that scientist make observations by paying close attention to something.  Each student observed a banana by looking at shape, color, texture, size, weight, smell, and taste.  We recorded our findings.

Science – Gonzales

We Identified the 3 states of matter: solid, liquids, and gasses.  We identified these states in everyday objects like the water in a bottle, air in a balloon, and a block.  We will use these vocabulary words in our observations.

Conferences

We will be conferencing with several families on Thursday, October 8th.  If you have signed up for a conference on that day please be on time.  You will need to check in at the office and we will, most likely, be meeting in the library.
