I hope that winter is treating you well. During our first week back — we’ve studied about salad greens. The students created a salad with paper to end our study on Thursday. Some things they learned about salad greens are that they contain some important vitamins (like A, K and C). Vitamin K they learned helps our bodies control bleeding (blood clotting). The students learned that vitamin A strengthens our heart, lungs and other organs.
During the past week I read a couple of books by Jacquline Jules from her series Zapato Power. The students seemed to greatly enjoy the stories about a kid with amazing shoes! My math students have begun studying geometric shapes as well some other concepts we’ve been working on for a while (counting coins, telling time and story problems). Recently they’ve studied these fact families: 11,4,7; 9,5,4 and 9,6,3.
Many of the students wrote “how to” pieces during the past week.
