We will continue to plan for Mad Minute Math on Thursday and Spelling Test on Friday. We will also have a Continents and Oceans Test on Friday. They will be required to label the continents and oceans on a map. They will not be responsible for spelling them, but they will need to recognize the words when they see them. A study guide went home today as well as a sheet that we worked on in class.
I am including some fun links to check out to help learn these as well! The songs are great and make the learning fun. I also taught the kids some motions to “We’ve Got the Whole Globe/World in Our Hands”.
Have a great week!
