This week in class we celebrated Mother's Day. We read books about moms. Our favorite was Mars Needs Moms. We made text to text and text to self connections. We sequenced stories and made predictions. We found the authors purpose and expanded our vocabulary. These students are really making tremendous strides in their learning. We are really getting ready for first grade.
In math we finished our unit on shapes. The tests were impressive. We also practiced using tangrams, counting by two's, adding coins, measuring with a ruler, and making estimates.
