A'Peeling News


We have started to read non-fiction books. The class loved the Truth or Lie books that I read as a mentor text for our new nonfiction unit. I also read a question and answer book called, I Wonder Why?  I also started reading some Thanksgiving books! The class has enjoyed the Junior Great Books short stories that I presented. 


We have started our number relationships unit. We have been focusing on even and odd numbers as well as problem solving. We are looking at number equations and trying to decide the best way to add numbers. For example, doubles - 5 + 6 /5 + 5 = 10 and one more equals 11. 


We have been talking about planning our nonfiction booklets. We have been looking at mentor texts and the important parts. (i.e. - glossary, index, labels and diagrams)

Art,  Science and Social Studies

We have done a great deal of Halloween art. The favorite this week was the symmetrical pumpkin. We have continued our unit in Science. We loved learning about bones! We have continued our geography unit.

Differentiated Instruction

The children will have many opportunities to work on center  enrichment activities. We have started working in pairs in Math, Reading and Spelling.
