Our second week of school is already over! We started science this week. We started learning about fruits. We observed green beans and cut them open. We counted how many seeds were inside. We also described an apple and the beans. In our science textbook, we learned about how and why plants make seeds. We started our science notebooks and they look a lot like a real textbook! We added table of contents, a word bank and the life science standards. We took our first trip to music class with Mrs. D, and our first PE class with Coach Josh. In Room 21, we learned how to use our book boxes and chose books to put in them. We all presented our Identity Posters. It was interesting to learn about each other! We also started our jobs this week. We're learning how to work together to keep our classroom neat and organized like we promised. We also started our first math unit. The topic is place value. On Wednesday, we had Back to School Night. It was so fun seeing the notes from our parents on Thursday morning! We took a long, 50 word spelling test so Mrs. Winn could see where we all are in our spelling growth. We started a third notebook this week, our reading notebooks! We read "When Granny Met Johnny Appleseed" and learned how to give a STAR answer. Today, we did our second whole class journal. It made us nervous to think about other people reading our writing from the week before. We didn't have any homework this week because we did it at school. Next week, we'll start getting homework on Scootpad! We also did our first DLR (daily language review) this week.
