A Busy Week

We FINALLY had a full and busy week here in the Bair's Den! We completed our first reading assessment using the strategies of summarizing and story structure. At the beginning of our story we had a lot of questions about the Iditarod, and the last few days we have been researching and finding those answers.

We continued to review the continents and oceans. We also talked about the lines of latitude and played a new version of Simon Says to help us learn them! Ask your child to play by using the important lines of latitude on the map in their Social Studies folder.

In science we took our first trip to the lab, and we had a chance to actually work with the tools that scientists use in their labs.

Our first box of books arrived, and we were very excited to see everything that will be added to our library!

As you can see, it's been a GREAT week in the Bair's Den, and lots of learning took place. What did YOU learn this week?
