This week we started a new unit in Science. Students are investigating force and motion. Vocabulary: motion, force, gravity, push, pull, heavy, light, mass, direction, speed, friction.
In math, students are working on counting strips, 120 number charts, using ten frames to show two digit numbers, reading and writing numbers to 120 and counting to 120 beginning at any number. They continue to solve word problems with two and three addends.
In social studies we are reading about changes in our community and how animals and people change as they grow. Writing is taught across the curriculum. We will focus on persuasive writing.
Snack next week will be provided by Tanner.
