We began learning about place value in math. The kids counted over 1,000 straws by bundling them into groups of 10s, 100s, and 1,000. They are building up to being able to add and subtract within 1000. We've been focusing on change in reading. We learned how animals, plants, and people adapt to changing seasons. We also worked on main ideas and details and subjects and verbs. We learned about how water forms canyons in science. We created our own model and observed how our "landform" changed with "rainstorms." We had a visit from the Fox Lake Fire Department, too. Here are a few pics from our week.
