We have been super busy in the Seal classroom over the last couple of weeks.
We traveled half way around the world to China, India and Germany today and Thursday we will go to Israel and Mexico. Ask your Seal what they did in each country!
We are learning about:
- how to gather important information from non fiction texts
- how to write teaching books
- measuring with different tools
- place value
- how bacteria grows
- needs and wants
- celebrations around the world
Dr. Williams and her trusty assistant came to our class to show us how to grow bacteria!
We even looked at things closely under the microscope!
and after just a few days...
Sharing how our thinking is growing and changing as we read non fiction text
Holding all of our new knowledge in our reader's response journals
Measuring the room with markers,
Special guest readers
write the room
writing our spelling words
introducing a new word sort
Dolls from around the world
comparing measurements with a gingerbread man
place value gingerbread houses
Decorating the flags for our suitcases
