Between field trips, snow days and everything in between, we have been BUSY! We made adjective people to help us understand that adjectives are describing words.
On Monday, we went to the Museum of Science to look at examples of motion. Students completed scavenger hunts and saw a forces and motion presentation. Below are some pictures of our trip. Some chaperones sent pictures from their day. If you have any good ones, send them to Ms. Curran!
In CCT we practiced our critical thinking skills and following directions. We made finger people using details given to us by Ms. P. Then we talked to members of our group and compared our finger people. After, students added details, color and names. They created a story about a mystery favorite finger person and had others try and guess their answer.
In math we started talk about the relationship between addition and subtraction. We used Cuisinaire Rods as a manipulative to bridge the relationship and write addition and subtraction sentences. Tomorrow we will look at fact families a little more closely.
