Today we continued with playing place value games. Students also had a question to answer about the game closest to 100. We did do our math practice today as well. In science we learned about why the sea turtles are in danger of becoming extinct. We came up with four reasons: loss of habitat, poachers, fishing nets and pollution. We also read two chapters from our historical fiction book The Courage of Sarah Noble.We are now on chapter 5. We wrote in our NaNoWriMo books and we are on a scavenger hunt to find out how authors use capital letters in their writing! We have the following list: Beginning of sentences, for a person’s name, all capital letters are used to show yelling, for a place and in titles. We will keep searching! We also learned how to play a new game with words. I will send a word version of “Go Fish” home on Monday.
