Weekly Update

Take a look at our learning last week:

Reading

In reading this week, we wrapped up our nonfiction reading unit!  We continued to work on sounding like experts when we read aloud.

We learned that sometimes readers put on their writing glasses and read a book thinking about the cool and interesting features that the author put into the story.  We noticed that the author of our Owls book, Mary R. Dunn, used number words, shapes, colors, sizes, and even examples to teach us about owls.  We realized that we can do this in our nonfiction writing too!

We continued to notice keywords in our books and even made a list of keywords about our topic.  We tried to use these words when sharing with our reading partners to sound like experts.

Finally, we talked about using our bodies to bring the book to life.  We used our arms and faces to act our what was happening in our nonfiction books.  This was so much fun!

We will wrap up this unit by reading one of our non-fiction books to Mrs. Baker’s kindergarten class this week.

 

Writing

This week we wrapped up our unit on Nonfiction Books. Once all of our books were finished, we went through and carefully edited and revised our favorite book.
We ended the week by adding a cover to our book and finally getting to color the pictures we have been working so hard on the past several week. We took our finished books down to Mrs. Bohl’s kindergarten class on Thursday and got a chance to read them to some kindergarten buddies. We loved sharing our books with them!

Math

We spent part of this week reviewing for our test, and the rest of the week was spent taking the test! Our class did an awesome job of showing what they know. Look for the scored test to come home with your child sometime at the beginning of this week.
