We used Hershey Candy bars to investigate fractions. We learned what equivalent fractions are. We made drawings of all the fractions we could find. We went to science lab and we learned that light has many colors. We see white light and really it is red, orange, yellow, green. blue indigo and violet. We learned that the primary colors of light are red, green and blue. Megan brought her dog Tank in for a visit. That is an appropriate name for the dog. It is huge!!!! The nonfiction reading groups finished thier posters. We are working on traditional literature. We are reading legends, fables, fairy tales, and folktales. We are trying to find the differences between them. The vowel teams we are working on this week are not true vowel sounds. We are looking at the oy and oi sounds and the ue and ew sounds that we call the “refrigerator vowel sounds”. We also have the “band aid vowel sound” that you hear in the word ouch. We are on a scavenger hunt for words with these sounds. Spelling words and the Alford’s Articles went home today.
