Jambo!

Jambo!

We are now in the continent of Africa. Africa is the world's second largest continent.  The longest river in the world is in Africa, do you know what it is?   For homework in the next two weeks, we will be studying the animals of Africa and writing reports.  What is your African animal, and what is one fun fact about your animal.

Just another busy day in Room F.


We had a super fun and busy day today in Room F!

First we went to the computer lab and finished our fall leaf artwork. 

Then we had our spelling test. 
Before recess we were working on our reading stamina, we are up to 15+ minutes of quietly reading a "good fit book" from our book boxes.

After recess we played a math game, where we had to find our related fact friend.  


We practiced our poem of the week "The Dreidel Song."

After lunch we worked on our Daily 5, reading groups, had fun Friday free time, and a quick fire drill before going home.

Just another busy day in Room F.  What was your favorite activity today?

Thanksgiving Traditions

At this time of year, people look forward to certain family traditions. A tradition is “the process of handing down a belief or custom from one generation to the next.” 

Today in class we were talking about our Thanksgiving Traditions.  Some people go to their grandma's house and eat turkey dinner with their family.  Some friends in class eat special food from the countries their family came from.  In my family, my husband and sister-in-law cook the turkey together and then we all sit down at the table together to eat turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and salad.  

What is your Thanksgiving tradition?   

What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?
