Today in math we studied kilometres. We counted how many giant steps it would take to cross the gym floor. Then, by skip counting with our calculators, we discovered how many trips across the gym we would have to make to travel approximately 1km. Here are some sites to practice using linear metric units. http://www.aaamath.com/B/mea69x10.htm http://www.aaamath.com/mea69-compare-meter-number.html In literacy, we continue to talk about persuasive writing. Here is a website that helps teach students how companies market their products in a way that interests children. They can create their own cereal box!! Coco We continued on with our music program today as well, learning a couple of new songs. Ask your child to sing "Magic Penny" and "Animal Fair" for you. Have a good night!
