Animal Adaptations!

Last week we learned about animals and the different adaptations that they need to survive in their environments. The students worked together with a partner to research an animal using iPads. The students learned some awesome things about their animals! Some facts the students researched were the height and weight of their animal, where in the world they can be found, and their protective skin coverings.

Multiplication Madness

I apologize for the hiatus. Unfortunately not all teachers are immune from the germs that go flying around the room!


Last week we wrapped up multiplication and moved on to Telling Time. The students played a memory match game using their multiplication facts.

Madison and Nick loved playing the memory match game. Madison used the 9 finger trick to help her figure out 6X9.

                                       

Alexa and Madelyn played together and Alexa was excited to show me her match!
         
                                       

Alex helped Joseph with his multiplication fact while Constantine and Caleb hoped for more matches!

                                         

Shyyon lined up his matches while Sophia and Ivana waited for Mya to figure out her multiplication fact.

                                          

Daria assisted Gabriel with his facts while Romeo waited patiently for his turn.

                                          

Savannah figured out her fact while David and Anthony waited for their turn.


                                           

Leidy tried to figure out the best cards to pick while Pasquale held on to his matches! Alaina and Elizabeth eyed up the next card they would pick.

Center Time!

Each week the students rotate in literacy centers. Centers include word work, reading silently, partner reading, working on writing, and working with Ms. Feeny. Students love having the opportunity to work on specific skills, especially when Ms. Feeny's iPad is involved! 



The Blue squares and Purple hearts selected a fiction story from the library and read in the classroom and outside in the hallway. 


The Pink circles wrote fiction stories in their writing notebooks. 


The Black diamonds partner read Mr. Putter and Tabby Write the Book outside in the hallway.




The Orange rectangles used picture clues to build words using the Osmo app on Ms. Feeny's iPad!
