We have been busy here in room 308! Wasting no time after vacation! We practiced what we know about non-fiction text and identified non-fiction features by CUTTING up old books. Yes, cutting books. Students got quite the thrill out of this. Learning got kinda messy as we cut out different features like table of contents, glossary, headings, captions and graphs.


During morning meeting this week, we have worked with reflective morning messages. This week our theme has been making a difference and the act of being caring. Students discussed problems in their life or the world that they wanted to change and some ideas about what they could do to change them. We had quite the inquiry going on in our room and I loved to see their compassion!


We have started our science unit on life science and particularly the study of our salmon. The salmon eggs have hatched into alevin,which is the next stage in their life cycle. We learned about the different stages of the salmon life cycle. We also studied different organism's life cycles to get familiar with the idea of the cycle of life. Students worked in groups to watch time lapse videos of each organism and then presented to the class what they learned. Students were so creative in the way they presented!
