It's been a while...

We have been very busy in our classroom over the past few months. I am so proud of how our hard the students have been working. We are growing so much as readers and writers. At math we are developing such a strong number sense. 

This week during our literacy block we are reading Pigeon books by Mo Willems. We read Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog. We are working on making connections, character traits, problem/solution, retelling, and opinion writing. I love how we are developing as writers.

This week we are beginning our study of  early Amercian history. We are learning about the original 13 colonies. Throughout this unit we will be learning about important people in our countries history and how we expanded to 50 states. 

At science time we are learning about plants. On Monday we planted grass seeds. We are learning about what plants need to survive. To help us understand the importance of water, sun, soil, and air, we will be doing some experiments. We have one plant that will get sunlight, but no water. Another plant will be watered, but it will have no sun. We predicted that they will not grow.

One of our favorite things to do in our classroom is to watch Kid President. Below you will see a link to one of the videos we watched this week. 

Have a wonderful week!
