Happy Fall Y'All
What a unique start to the year! It's so good to be back face to face! The kids have done a wonderful job with wearing masks, sanitizing and washing, and maintaining social distance. We have spent a busy first month learning a new routine and schedule. The children are working hard in all subject areas and are getting used to "At Home Learning. We have begun AIS in both reading and math. We are working with Chrome Books and utilizing the Google Classroom.
In Math the children have worked on patterns and number awareness. We have been working on place value. We will also be reviewing addition, subtraction, money, and time.
In ELA we have begun vocabulary and we have been working on writing paragraphs. The students have designed their own "checklists" to compose the perfect paragraph.
In Social Studies we have been focusing on the sights, land forms, and symbols of New York State. Starting in October, we will be studying about the Native Americans in New York State. We have been given the green light for our longhouses and more information will follow.
In Science it's all about animals and their adaptations. We are learning about their life cycles, their structure, and how to use the Scientific process when we are problem solving. We have dissected owl pellets and worked on animal classification.
