• Math: Comparison Bars

    Posted by Diane Gray on 4/5/2019

    The kids just learned how to compare data in story problems using comparison bars.  They are able to collect information, represent it, and ask and answer questions using the data.  They are using important math vocab words such as organize, represent, data, sort, compare, category, more, and fewer.  We will cover more of this throughout next week as well.

  • Expository Writing: How to...

    Posted by Diane Gray on 4/5/2019

    The kids have been learning about expository writing through teaching each other about how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and how to brush your teeth!  The kids really had some wonderful opening sentences to grab their readers - ask them about some of the jokes they made about teeth and what onomatopoeia is...they loved making sounds in their papers.

  • Reader's Workshop - Non-Fiction

    Posted by Diane Gray on 3/20/2019

    We started learning about the features of non-fiction.  We read Eric Carle's, The Very Hungry Caterpillar(fiction), and compared it to a non-fiction book about butterflies.  We discussed how a fiction book's purpose is to entertain and read for enjoyment, there is a beginning, middle, and end, and it has story elements.  Then, we compared it to non-fiction and discussed how it's purpose is to learn and is based on facts, real events, and real people.  Today we discussed the importance of the title, table of contents, and photographs.

    Posted by Diane Gray on 3/20/2019

    9th grade english students from Sharon High School visited with us last Tuesday.  They interviewed our class and went to recess and lunch with us too!  The 9th graders will now return to their school and turn the interviews into wonderful stories.  Now we will be heading to the high school on April 29th to hear those stories.  We can't wait to see our new friends again.

    I will send home a note about our high school visit this week.  Please sign and return in your child's folder as soon as possible.  Thank you!

  • Life Science - Animals

    Posted by Diane Gray on 3/20/2019

    Last week the kids began learning about animals and how they use their body parts to help them survive.  We broke into groups and talked about how some animals use their ears, eyes, feet, nose, mouth, and tails to help them survive.  We then investigated further into each body part to see if the animal needed it to help them grow and live, or did it help make their life easier(sometimes it was both).  The kids had great discussions and really took over the lesson and learned so much!  Then we began to discuss the term, offspring.  This week we focused on 3 birds and their offspring - The Crane, Puffin, and Penguin.  We read a book about each, watched some interesting videos about where their nests are built, and ended with a great discussion on similarities and differences.  Be sure to ask the children what is an offspring, about each animals nest, and how they help protect their offspring, and what some WOW facts were that they learned along the way.

  • Social-Emotional Learning

    Posted by Diane Gray on 2/28/2019

    Mrs. Muldowney came in and read the book Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon.  Then the kids wrote a special valentine to themselves about the wonderful qualities they each have.  Today, Mrs. Muldowney read Scaredy Squirrel and we discussed the difference between scared and anxious.  We then talked about what it's like to leap into the unknown and what some feelings might be that we could have.
