We had a review week in language arts. Our focus book was Turtle Splash. We focused on blends this week.
We continued our zoo unit and read some books about zoos.
We learned about the monkey and we made one too.
And we also learned about the lion.
We worked on syllables in a word with our alligator chomps.
We also made alligators.
And we saved the largest land mammal for last, the elephant.
In science, we compared animals based on their skin (fur, feathers, smooth or scales). We did an activity in which we sorted the animals based on these characteristics.
In math, we learned 4 new games that help teach us our addition facts. We enjoyed playing these games this week as we practiced our facts while Mrs. Langham was busy assessing us on these skills.
In addition to all this learning, we also got to watch the 5th graders blast their rockets into the sky. This was really neat to see. We were amazed at how far they went.
Murchison Middle School came and put on a play called The Frog Prince. We thought this was really fun and enjoyed seeing a fairy tale come to life.
And, Ms. Phillips came to our room to teach us how to be bucket-fillers.
