Here's a look at what we did last week in pictures!
Our reading story was Jan's New Home, so during social studies, we talked a lot about the differences and similarities between the country and the city. We made a venn diagram to compare and contrast these two places and then each student picked which they liked better and we did a little writing activity.
We discussed what the theme was and then identified the theme in Jan's New Home
While we were reading the story, we realized that the author never said why Jan and her family were moving, so we brainstormed possible reasons why they could be moving.
Friday after tests we read The Country Mouse and the City Mouse, which went along perfectly with our reading and social studies lessons
We made Chinese dragons in honor of Chinese New Years
Is it too early to break out valentine's centers?? Maybe, but my kids and I were ready! They are loving these centers.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend! :)
