Soil, soil everywhere!!

There is soil all around us!  Different types, shapes, sizes, and more.  Today we looked at the different types of natural materials that our school is made up of and many of them have soil in it.

Morning Journal:  What is your favorite Italian food and why?

Writing Workshop:  We continued writing our thematic stories about our favorite mineral.  We read some Native American legends and discussed some characteristics of them.

Reading Workshop:  We worked on our reading workshop activities and many of the students met with me in small groups.

Math Workshop:  We reviewed rounding to the nearest 10 and 100.  The students brought home a half sheet of paper for homework tonight, but they only need to do the ones that have rounding to the nearest 10 and 100, NOT the 1000's.

Science: The world is full of natural resources.  Our main natural resource is coal.  We use it every single day when we use electricity.  We took at walk around the school and looked at the natural resources that make up our school building and the surrounding areas.  We collected some sample items and we are creating a fossil with these items. 

SPIRIT DAY IS FRIDAY!!!  Please have your child wear red, white, and/or blue!!
