We attended an assembly about science. We learned about matter and energy. Ask your child what are the three states of matter? Also, see our blog post about the assembly.
We learned about possessive nouns and how to use an apostrophe to show ownership in our writing. We also continued to work on our animal reports in writing.
We finished our math unit on measuring length. Students took a test on the topic, which you will find in their Friday Folder. We began to learn about telling time. We learned there are 60 minutes in an hour and that when the minute hand moves from one number to the next that 5 minutes have passed. Also, we learned that quarter past means fifteen minutes after the hour, quarter to means 15 minutes before the next hour. When someone says it is half past, then 30 minutes have gone by since the last hour and there are 30 more minutes until the next hour.
