The students loved learning about penguins and Antarctica this week. It was amazing how much information they retained. They wrote about the facts they learned from the informational texts we read. They also made many text to text connections and used prior experiences/knowledge to add to the conversation. We created a web about penguins, and the students listed many facts that they had learned.
We also had time to do a couple fun art projects this week! The students independently made adorable penguin locker tags, and they made super cute snowflake snowmen.
In math, students wrapped up the unit on understanding the pattern of 10 plus problems. They also reviewed telling time to the half hour, adding numbers with a sum greater than 10, adding and naming coins, and drawing and writing addition and subtraction number sentences.
