Students worked on a Father's Day project in writing this week. They spent lots of time writing and creating something special for all of their fathers. These will be sent home next week. I know you will enjoy them! We also began to write and illustrate a Summer Goals flip book. Students wrote about what they hope to read, eat and play over their summer break!
We continued to work with 3D shapes in math. We reviewed the shape names (cylinder, sphere, cube, square prism, rectangular prism, triangular prism cone, pyramid) and looked for real world examples. We spent time examining the "faces" (flat sides) of our 3D shapes by playing an I Spy game. For example, "I spy a 3D shape that has one circular face (cone). I spy a 3D shape that has 6 square faces (cube)."
We are beginning to wrap up our science unit on Living and Non-Living Things. Students chose a "mystery animal" to classify as either a mammal, reptile, bird or fish. They had to provide evidence to prove their classifications. We also observed our grass biomes for the second time. They noticed lots of new growth in their biomes since our last observation. They recorded what they noticed in their science journals.
