Day 10- Just another day...

Just another day at the Hills!
Reading: The Ocean Alphabet Book

Activity: KWL Chart. The kids named a ton of ocean animals! I was impressed with their prior knowledge. They referenced Finding Nemo quite a bit; Thank you Disney! Check out our chart!

Did you know there are fish that love to fight? (the bluefish) And the big monster fish from Finding Nemo is a Viperfish. Lobsters are red, blue, and green; they only turn bright red when they are cooked. Fascinating!

Update on our General Delk's Guide to Clifton Hills:

It's really coming along. I plan to have us finish it tomorrow and get pictures for it Thursday and Friday. Two books in two weeks! We are on fire!

In math we worked more on making numbers using manipulatives. The kids did well. We started working on story problems, so they had to listen to a story, recognize the number word and make it using their manipulatives. I even included some addition and subtraction problems, and they did great! I know they will shine on their first math test tomorrow!
* for homework, I sent home a review sheet from their math workbooks. It's counting and writing the numbers. We went over it as a class before I put it in their folders.

 Science: Reviewed mammals, reptiles, amphibians, carnivore, herbivore and omnivore. Today we added the terms predator and prey.

Example: A lion is a predator because it hunts for its food.

A zebra is the lion's prey; it is hunted.

 After we went over the words for about 15 minutes, the students paired up and were given animal fact files and were told to classify the animals as being a predator or prey.
Tomorrow we start classifying things as being living and nonliving. The excitement never stops!
