This week in math we are focusing on addition and subtraction word problems. We used words like fewer and more and had to figure out when to add or subtract.
Our essential question this week in reading was "How can people help out in their community?" We read a story about a community in Arizona who painted a mural to beautify their community. We also worked on finding the author's purpose. We looked for clues to help us figure out if the author was trying to describe, explain or entertain us.
We started a new unit in science this week" Properties of Matter. We read a story about what matter is and then discussed things we already know about matter and what we would like to learn. They we went on a matter scavenger hunt in the classroom.
Remember, next week is our trip to the zoo for the UNLESS contest. Please keep in mind that we will be outside during part of the trip and to dress your child for the weather.
Have a great weekend.
