Our focus this week in reading was "What do good citizens do?" One of the stories we read about was called "A Difficult Decision." The students really relate to this realistic fiction story. It is about two boys who while playing at the park come across a hand-held video game. The boy who finds it thinks he should keep it using the old adage "finders keepers, losers weepers." The other boy thinks that he should not. In the end, the boys find the rightful owner and return the game and realize that is what a good citizen would do.
In preparation for the upcoming Easter holiday, we did some fun activities. We did a writing piece about what would happen if the Easter Bunny was sick.
We also dyed easter eggs and made easter bags in the hopes of receiving some goodies.
We started a math unit on Time this week. The students should be able to tell time to the nearest five minutes by the end of the unit. Then we will be moving on to money. For those should who have a hard time counting by 5's and 10's , this unit may prove to be a bit difficult. Please practice these skills and even coin recognition with your children.
We are finishing up our Properties of Matter unit this week in science. You should have seen a study guide come home this week. The next unit we will start after our break is Plants and Animals and Their Habitats.
As always, enjoy your time together as a family. Have a great break!!
