Do you know who Katarina is? Now we do! She is a new addition to our class and we are very excited to have her here! Now we have 33 students in room 40!
The first thing we did today was review for our chapter one math test. This test will be on place value and pictographs. Mr. Kootman did a wonderful job of preparing us for the test. After math, we began our new story, Toto, in our language arts book. After that, we created a clues chart for the story. The purpose of a clues chart is to learn about the story before we read it. Mr. Kootman says that good readers try to get an idea for a story before they begin it. We also did our vocabulary log for Toto.
Throughout the school day, we took notes for the blog you are reading now! Tomorrow, we will all write our own class blogs. After lunch, we read our chapter book, School Story. In this chapter Zoe went to work with her dad to study publishing.
The last thing we did on Tuesday was social studies. We learned new vocab words, such as: tropics, climate and hemisphere. Climate is the pattern of weather in a place over a long period of time. That wraps up our spectacular day. We can't wait for Thursday to come so we can start yoga!
