Today we continued learning about information texts. We learned more about what a fact was and began to learn about how it is different from an opinion, or simply misinformation. We listened to the song Little Known Facts, from the wonderful musical, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and heard Lucy singing. As Lucy does, she sang like she knows everything, when in reality, she is a little mixed up. It was fun to listen and hear all the things she said that were not facts. We know when we write information texts, we are writing what is true and not just our opinion or what we think. Listen to Little Known Facts and ask me to tell you what is not a fact. (Music only, no video.)
We played a fun game called That's a Fact, Jack! We listened to statements to determine whether it was a fact or an opinion or misinformation. So when I said, "Elvis Presley was the world's greatest singer," they said "That's what you think," but if I said "Disney World is in Florida," they said "That's a fact, Jack!" It's a fun game to play! Then students wrote a fact and an opinion or misinformation.
We worked more with ten frames today in math. We played a game to fill up the ten frame boards. Children had to tell how many were on their board after each roll, and how many more they needed to make ten.
We are looking forward to sharing our timelines on Friday! Please check our homepage for some great events happening in our area, as well as our weekly homework.
Have a great evening!
