Science: We had fun playing with and learning about solids and liquids. We learned the properties of solids and liquids and did a lot of exploring with both. The kids couldn't wait till the end when we got to mix all of our liquids together to see what would happen. Before Christmas break we also made gak, which is mostly made of liquids, but it turned into a solid.
Reading: We reviewed the short u sound, and worked on -ack family words. We talked about adjectives, and came up with color, number, and size words used to describe something. We have been talking alot about making text to text connections by comparing and contrasting different books we have read. This week we have been reviewing our Daily 5 routines, and the students are doing a wonderful job.
Writing: We finished our how to unit by writing how to Christmas stories. Be sure to keep your eye out for the next class book!
