We had a fun Friday at SCE. It was Multicultural Day. We had taste testing, learned about India and Ireland, and took part in various assemblies. Thank you to everyone who helped with this event!
Please return your Read-A-Thon envelope by Dec. 1 with the reading log, sponsor pledge form, and donations.
We have school next Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving break. No school on Wednesday.
We started learning about folk tales. We learned that folk tales are stories or legends handed down from generation to generation. They usually contain a lesson and it happened long ago. We started to read folk tales and recorded their characteristics on a chart. We focused on identifying the moral of the story and text that supported our ideas.
Our learning goal continued to be about persuasive writing. The students shared their turkeys with the class and began writing letters explaining why their turkey was not a turkey. We focused on adding reasons for our opinion and using persuasive language.
Our learning goal continued to be spelling words with r-controlled vowels (bossy r). We did a word search for er, ir, and ur. The class sorted words based on the r-controlled pattern they heard. We used whiteboards to practice.
We continued learning strategies to add numbers and solve word problems. The class used strategies they know to add three numbers, make balanced equations (9+4=7+6), and find missing addends. We took the assessment on Thursday.
We started a research project about Ohio animals. Students chose one animal to research. They learned about the animal's habitat, food, and how they adapt to their environment. Students will begin creating a Google slides presentation about their animal.
