It was a great week back from a wonderful, long break. We are still working hard on our non-fiction writing. We learned all about brown bears and wrote a book about them. We also started researching a topic on PebbleGo. It is a wonderful, easy-to-use site. The kids are absolutely loving it. Most of them chose animals and are learning so much. We started writing our non-fiction chapter books today and should be finishing up tomorrow or Monday.
We went over letter writing, and the kids practiced with a letter to a friend or family member, as well as a letter to Santa. One of our books this week was Goldilocks and the Three Bears. They wrote a letter to Goldi as one of the bears. They had fun with it, and I really enjoyed reading their letters!
Everyone enjoyed our magnetism lesson. We did a mini experiment and graphed our results. Tomorrow we are doing a Ramp and Roll Stem Challenge for a force and motion lesson. I'll be sure to post photos afterward.
The class Christmas party is Wednesday, December 21 from 11:45-12:30. It is a half day, so your child is welcome to leave with you after the party if you come. If you could, please bring a wrapped book for the book exchange we are doing. Thank you!
