Happy almost spring...at least lets hope this cold and snow are on it's way out and nicer weather is on it's way to Jamestown. We will be charting the calendar marking each day with either a lion or a lamb as we learn the expression: "In like a "lion", out like a "lamb"!
This month is all about Dr. Seuss and rhyming and silly stories. Students love the classic Seuss books like Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Hop On Pop, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, and many, many, more wonderful books. We will read as many books of his as we can and listen to all those rhyming words and try to make up our own silly stories. We will also do lots of word work with word families such as: at, et, it, ig, og, op, etc.
In math it is all about teen numbers, place value, adding and subtracting, and reviewing our 2D and 3D shapes. The students continue to write daily adding punctuation, spaces, details, upper and lowercase letters, and beautiful drawings to their papers. In science we will be discussing the upcoming changes in the weather and our environment while doing experiments with the wind, clouds, and rain. We will also be starting a unit on Balls and Ramps learning how different balls of various sizes and shapes roll and bounce.
