Today we studied the external features of a duck. We read two books online to identify the external features that ducks need to meet their basic needs. We drew and labeled a duck's external features, then wrote about one external feature and how it helps the duck to survive. Ask me to name three external features a duck has and how it helps them to survive.
Then, we continued on our Read Across America journey and visited Massachusetts. We read Make Way for Ducklings, by Robert McCloskey. This book tells the story of a pair of ducks who decide to make their nest on an island in a Boston park. Ask me to tell you about some of the problems the ducks had in Boston.
In math, we are continuing to work with decomposition. We are working with number bonds, which is a set of circles that have the whole and it's parts connected. We also wrote a number sentence that shows the decomposition. For example, 7 = 3+4. We listened to story problems and used the number bonds to find the answers, then wrote a number sentence to go with the problem.
Have a nice evening!
