In our PYP unit: How we Express Ourselves: Storytelling we learned all about fables and the elements of a fable. We compared and contrasted two fables. We also analyzed fables based on their themes or lessons. We continued to practice reading with good fluency and sounding like a good storyteller.
In Writing we continued to work on our own Folktales. We are in the process of editing and revising our work. Also we are working on publishing our final drafts.
In Math we started to learn all about bar graphs and pictographs. We learned how to read, interpret and create bar and pictographs. We will continue learning about these next week.
In Science we observed the behavior of our crayfish. We watched the crayfish interact with each other and objects in their environments. We also did some scientific reading about crayfish and their distinguishing features. We even named our crayfish. The favorite crayfish overall has to be Jumper!
The students also had their Music concert! They practiced really hard and did a great job! It was wonderful to see all their hard work pay off! Well done!
We also had our Valentine's Day Party and Activities! We learned all about the heart and how to be heart healthy! We finished the day off with heart healthy snacks and passing out Valentines! What great fun!
