Second grade students worked with phonics cards, wrote sentences with irregular verbs, and further practiced placing commas in a sentence containing nouns in a series. Third grade students worked with phonics cards, wrote and symbolized sentences containing adverbs, and also practiced placing commas in a sentence containing nouns in a series.
For math jobs this week, First grade students had more practice with addition using the bead frame, worked on counting dimes, and practiced telling time to the quarter hour. Second grade students worked with multiplication, solved money word problems, and practiced telling time to the minute. Third grade students continued working with division, solved money word problems, and measured angles using a protractor.
In Geography, students began a study on the biomes of North America. Students watched a short video and then identified the various biomes on a map of North America.
In Science, students continued their work animals and the food chain. Students also began a short study on sound. Using the Smartboard, students were able to experience how pitch changes on a guitar and a xylophone.
