 Math

What a busy week. We learned about symmetry, and how many lines of symmetry a shape may have. We worked on finding out the rectangles area and perimeter.  We learned our formula for area is A=L x W and Perimeter P=L+L+W+W. 

 

Language Arts

This week we started writing a tall tale. Tall tales have many hyperboles and the kids are working on generating these for their main character.  We have some creative writers.

 

Science

This week our investigation looked at lighting a light bulb, a motor and using an on/off switch. The kids are becoming familiar with electrical components. 

 

Social Studies

Next week we will be continuing our tour of the United States regions. We will be looking at the Midwest Region.
