Today we played a game using negative numbers. This game allows children to see that there are other types of numbers and it helps students become fluent with a number line. We also worked on the many ways we can write a number. In science we read a book called Michael Recycle and we learned a song that helped us learn about why it is important to recycle paper. We also read a book about mealworms and we found out that they will turn into a dark beetle that feeds on grains. If students bring in a note they may take them home! Lucky you!!!  We continued to find the difference between Federal, state and local governments. We read another chapter of The Courage of Sarah Noble. We are on chapter 7. Many students feel a connection because she is only 8 years old. We created a Thanksgiving Snapshot class book. This was a great way to have students try to use all of their senses. We also continued to investigate why we capitalize certain words. Today we were on a scavenger hunt for geographical names. Some students did have to take the capitalization sheet home for homework!
