So sorry that I haven't blogged the past couple of days. I have been really sick, but I am back now and here is the latest updates...
Morning Journal: Friday: What are you going to do this weekend? Monday: What is your favorite type of snack?
Writing Workshop: Thursday, Friday, and Monday: We are continuing to work on our thematic stories about our minerals. We are also beginning a new story where we will start to look at focus in our writing.
Reading Workshop: We have looked at folktales, fairy tales, myths, and legends. We are continuing our small group work and this week we will look at short vowel sounds.
Math Workshop: Rounding to the nearest 10, 100, and 1000. We have a test on this concept tomorrow. A great review website is: aaamath.com (Click on third grade, Click on rounding, Click on nearest 10, 100, or 1000's)
Science: We have looked in depth at the different materials soil can be made up of and today we tested our soils to see if they can be separated by water.
