ELA

In ELA we have been really focusing on our writing. We are learning how to write, rewrite, edit and revise our writing. Recently we have been reading and writing about dinosaurs and what era they have come from. In our writing we include details such as a particular dinosaurs predator, what they eat and what they look like. We are bringing together reading and writing, and science and the focus is dinosaurs.

Math

In math we have been learning to measure using different tools. We are measuring with a ruler, measuring tape and a yard stick. We are also learning to figure out what is the best tool to measure a specific item depending on size. If it's large a yard stick, if it is small a ruler would be best. If it is round a measuring tape would be best. We are also discussing the different units of measure such as inches and centimeters etc.

Science

In science we are learning about dinosaurs and their eating habits, where they lived and how they became extinct. We are also learning about their predators and their prey.
