Happy Thanksgiving Break!

Hope you are all having a wonderful break. Students have been asking me to post the websites we used to explore the digestive system, so they are listed below.

      The above website is an interactive website we used to explore the purpose of the digestive system.

      The above website contains a music video (at the very bottom of the website) about the digestive system.


In math, we have continued working on multiplication and division facts. We will continue to work on multiplication and division next week. We will also be starting to talk about place value next week.

In reading, we have been exploring trickster tales. Students read three stories and completed story maps that included the characters, setting, problem, plot, and solution last week. On Monday, we continued to talk about Trickster Tales and then we focused on Thanksgiving. We brainstormed facts we knew about Thanksgiving, read a passage about Thanksgiving, and then added new information to facts we already knew. Ask your students to share something new they learned about Pilgrims, Native Americans, or Thanksgiving.

Thank you for all that you do and I hope you have a marvelous Thanksgiving!

Ms. Ritland
