For language jobs, first grade students identified rhyming words in several poems, symbolized sentences containing prepositions, and were introduced to similes. Second graders were introduced to several different types of poems (ballad, epic, blank verse, ode), symbolized sentences containing adverbs, and were introduced to similes. Third grade students explored poetry, analyzed sentences, and explored similes.
For math jobs, first grade students reviewed geometric solids, were introduced to subtraction, and explored liquid measurement (pint, cups, gallons). Second grade students solved division problems using the test tube materials, explored liquid measurement equivalences, and explored geometric solids.
For cultural jobs, students went outside and identified common decomposers found in nature (worms, beetles, etc.). Students also began studying the body functions of the five classes of vertebrates (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals).
Next week, students will explore poetry, have continued work with similes, solve problems containing all math operations, and expand on their knowledge of liquid measurement. All students will continue their study of weather and vertebrate body functions! It will be a great week!
