We began our non-fiction unit. We will be reading, discussing, and writing about non-fiction. One reading group read a "How to Book" on making mobiles. That reading group then applied their knowledge to make the mobiles, and taught their peers how to make mobiles. We loved teaching and learning with peers. We will be reading how to books as well as informational texts during this unit. We will then explain what we have learned to others orally and in writing.
In math, we learned new addition games with dominoes and also introduced how to solve story problems. We discussed different ways we use addition in our world. We will continue to work on addition problems, and begin subtraction problems as well.
We are ready and eager to explore everything that 2015 has in store for us!
