We've been doing great in geometry! In math we have learned about solids vocabulary. We have reviewed the names of solids and compared the differences between cubes and rectangular prisms. We are getting ready to do a test next Tuesday (Good luck! Have good grades!). Today Ms. Pair quizzed us on the features and names of different shapes on the Promethean board. We also did a practice on geometric shapes.
In reading we have read different Folktale genres. We read legends and myths. We focused on what it means to write a good summary. We have been filling out a graphic organizer for each genre that we read to help us understand it better.We also read the fable, The Grasshopper and the Ant, and learned about the features of a fable. Today we wrote the summary of The Grasshopper and the Ant with a partner and then we picked the best summary out of a choice of three summaries.
Last week we made a timeline for a story where we experienced an force of nature like flood, drought, thunderstorm, etc. We are in the process of turning the timeline into the first draft.
We have learned about floods, droughts and landslides. We have learned that droughts happen a lot where we live. Today we learned about earthquakes. We explored a new website about earthquakes from National Geographic. We got to see new pictures. We even learned that there have been a total of 28 earthquakes recorded in the last 24 hours!
