What have we been learning so far?

Science

Students had a vote to decide which topic they wanted to learn about in Science!  The two choices were penguins or polar bears.  9 students voted for penguins and 5 voted for polar bears. Students have learned about penguin body parts, their habitat, and their life cycle so far. When we finish the penguin study, we will have a mini unit on polar bears next!  Stay tuned!

Social Studies

We have been studying about living and non-living things as well as human-made and natural things.  Students did a lot of categorizing and sorting of different things.

Math

We are still working on subitizing in math to increase the class’s number sense awareness.  Students are becoming more comfortable with numbers.  We will have a new math game with dots in January for Math Monday!
