This week we did some research on weather. We researched different types of weather like storms, tornadoes, snow and rainbows. Then we wrote and presented reports to each other.
We started a poetry unit in writing. We started by taking a nature walk and choosing some topics in nature that we wanted to write about. We tried using our imagination and seeing things differently through a poet's eyes. We learned about putting line breaks in our poems too.
In science, we did a fun gas experiment with Mrs. Taylor's gas. Then learned about how the particles look in solids, liquids and gases. We created a model to help us understand this concept.
In math, we finished up with clocks and have moved onto money. Several students still do need practice telling time. Many get confused with the hour hand. Whenever possible, try to practice at home. We are doing really well so far with coin counting. Next week we will start adding money and doing word problems involving money.
Our penny war for our playground is going great. Our penny bucket is very full. Great job parents. Next week, the bombing starts!! Let's go 2-Wells!! Bring in those silver coins and dollar bills.
Have a great weekend.
