Good evening,

Phonics: Today, the students reviewed the “U/u” sound, actions and songs. Students then completed an activity to practice writing the letter “U/u” and to practice identifying words that contain the “U/u” sound.

Lunch/ Recess 1

Math: Students have the patterning test on Thursday. Today, they reviewed the pattern terminology that we have been using such as the pattern core, attributes, and how to name patterns using letters. Students were working with AAB, ABB, and ABBA patterns. Students will have the following chart available to them for the test. It is important for them to refer to the chart if they have trouble identifying or creating a particular pattern.

Unit of Inquiry: Today students were focused on the sense of sight. We discussed different parts of the eye including the iris and the pupil.

IB Learner Profile: This month, students are focusing on the “Thinker” Learner Profile. Students read a story called “Caps for Sale.” They completed an activity and described how the peddler in the story demonstrated characteristics of a thinker. Students also had the opportunity to suggest a solution to the problem in the story. We have some very creative thinkers in the classroom!
