This week we worked on our first Inquiry Project. We practiced looking at images and describing what we see. We learned you can get information about animals from the words and the pictures. Students are sketching and taking notes.
In math, we continue our unit on shapes. Students are describing and sorting shapes. Vocabulary to reinforce at home: straight, curved, sort, square, triangle, corners, vertices, quadrilateral, rectangle, trapezoid, rhombus.
In writing, we are working on capital letters at the beginning of sentences and for names. We read about Veterans’ Day and played games about using capital letters.
We will meet with our third grade reading buddies every Thursday afternoon.
