Today we worked more with analyzing. We looked at one of the paintings in our Art Smart Station and practiced zooming in to look at details, and zooming out to get the whole picture. We were able to make guesses about where the kids in the picture were going. Then we looked at our other pictures in Art Smart and saw that all the pictures are about kids at school. All four pictures are very different, but they also are the same in many ways. Several children visited the Art Smart station today to sketch, label and/or write about the paintings.
Today we worked with Stretchy Snake in Writing Workshop. The stretchy snake is a tool we can use as writers to help stretch out unknown words so that we can get down the sounds we hear in the word to make our best effort in writing the word. We know that the stretchy snake is to be used as a tool and not a toy, otherwise the snake will be taken away from the writer. we worked on lists again, making sure to write a title on our list.
In math, we worked to collect data. We voted on favorite baseball teams. Be sure to look at our Math page to see more about the results of our vote. Mrs. Oglesby may not be happy with the results!
Have a nice evening,
