Good Afternoon!

This is what we did today.....

In reading.... we read "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs."  This story is told from the point of view of the wolf.  We discussed point of view and wrote a responses to literature about whether or not we believed the wolf and why.  We also learned about fables.  We discussed how they are similar to fairy tales- they can also have animals as characters and those animals often speak- but they are different because they usually teach a lesson.  We read the fable, "The Lion and the Mouse."  We discussed the new vocabulary words- furious, raged, snoozing, gnaw and repay.

In spelling....we took a pretest and wrote the words correctly in our spelling books.

In math....we learned about how to put double digit numbers in order from least to greatest and greatest to least.

In social studies....we worked on map skills.  We learned about a compass and a key on a map.
