The first week of March, we celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday. We made word family Cat in the Hat hats, green eggs and ham word families and more. We have been enjoying some of Dr. Seuss' great rhyming stories and writing about most of them.
Some of Dr. Seuss' stories introduced us to antonyms, or opposites. We each made a pair of feet (in honor of The Foot Book), to portray one antonym pair. On our iPads, we have been making PicCollages of antonyms. These will be added to our Weebly soon!
We have continued our exploration of money in math. We are learning to count small amounts of mixed coins as we go "shopping" for items on picture cards. Learning about 3D shapes and fact families has also been fun during our math periods!
In science, we are beginning to explore weather. March is a great time for these activities, because the weather often changes a lot from day to day - and sometimes during the day! This week, we have been measuring temperature with thermometers. We looked at thermometers that showed room temperature as we held them on the carpet. The thermometers in the hot water bowl and the cold water bowl looked much different, though! We drew pictures of our observations in our science notebooks.
In Writing Workshop, we are working on persuasive writing. We identified the opinions of characters in books we have read together, and now we are writing some of our own opinions. We have a variety of great ideas!
