The past two days we read another story about teamwork called A House For Max.. Ask me to retell the story. In writing, we wrote an extension of the story. We brainstormed different ideas, then talked with partners to share our extension before writing.. In Social Studies, we learned about wants and needs. We also continued to talk about natural resources. We visited Idaho yesterday and listened to a story a little girl wrote about her grandparents. During the depression, her grandfather was out of work, and they were homeless. The grandparents borrowed a car and drove to Idaho to dig up potatoes during the day. At night they were allowed to dig up potatoes for themselves. They left two weeks later with bags and bags of potatoes for themselves which they ate, and sold some as well. Today we visited Vermont and learned about sugaring. Ask me to tell you about maple syrup.
I added a bookmark to almost everyone's Chromebook. It is another Google classroom just for our Read the USA states. You will find a big postcard with what is supposed to be me on each one. You will find the story if you click on me, the postcard if you click on the mailbox, and if you click on the map you will find a little trip in the state we are visiting. There may be extras in the stream for each state. This is how we did Read the USA when we were home, so I figured I put so much work into it, I'd still use it, but I want to read the books myself to the kids. Some may be different, but it will just give the children more opportunities to learn about the states. I hope you enjoy it too. It might make you want to quit your job and buy an RV and tour the country!
Have a nice evening!
