The school year is definitely in full swing. I can't believe October is here already. Here is a peak at what we have been up to in Mrs. Stern's classroom.
We are really "digging in" and have started learning about rocks and fossils. Here we are observing rocks and sand with real magnifying glasses... just like REAL geologists.
Here we are having fun with place value in math! We learned the basics of re-grouping a group of 10 ones to make a ten. We raced against one another to see who could reach the 100 first. It was a lot of fun. (Who knew the kiddos were so competitive?! ;-)
We also tied place value to real life. We used "Stern Bucks" to practice counting money when we went on a virtual shopping trip to the toy store. The kids said I was not a very good bus driver lol.
In writing we have begun to write our own personal narratives. We brainstormed ideas to create a chart of special moments in our lives.
Well that was just a little peak of what we have been up to in the classroom.
We will be using this blog to display things we do in school. From class projects to experiments and more, we will be able to post about it here.
