Dental Health Month!!

February is Dental Health Month. We are learning about our teeth and how to keep them healthy. The students have also read articles about how to keep their teeth healthy. After reading the articles, the students wrote "SMART" answers to prove what they learned by finding evidence from the text.

We were also so fortunate to have a visit from Dr. VanWormer! He is a local dentist in town and taught us the importance of taking care of our teeth and what foods we can choose to help keep our teeth healthy and strong!!!

Finally, we made these cute little tooth fairies to display some of the facts that we learned!

Matter Sort

Today each student received a "Matter Box". The box contained various forms of matter. Each student was asked to sort the matter first by state (solid, liquid, or gas) and then categorize the matter by property. This project also helped Mrs. Patton clean out some messy closets!!:) Ha!!:)

QR Codes and Main Idea!!

Today during our Reader's Workshop, we tried something new!  We are working on identifying the main idea of a text and supporting our thoughts with details from a story.  Today, students walked around the room to scan QR codes, which were linked to www.storylineonline.net.  The students listened to the stories on Ipads and then wrote the main idea of the story and details to support their thoughts.
