Learning to Compare Numbers

Attributions: 

Second graders have been developing a deeper number sense by learning about place value, composing and decomposing numbers and by comparing numbers. Students compared numbers by building 3 digit numbers using base ten blocks. The students then used an alligators mouth to show if the number on the left was "greater than", "less then" or "equal" to the number on the rights.

The 3rd graders held a performance for students and parents on November 19th.  It was a readers theater based on a children's book called, "Double Trouble in Walla Walla" by, Andrew Clements.  The 3rd graders worked hard learning songs and some "crazy dazy" lines! They had the audience laughing and did a truly magnificent job!

Learning About Religion

We are learning about the 5 major world religions in social studies.  We learned about Mandalas and how early religions as well as religions today express their beliefs in the art work of mandalas.  There are still mandalas in churches and religions today!  The mandalas are a way to learn your own heart.  The main shape in a mandala is a circle.  Circles are seen in many things, life cycles, planets, moons, everything circles around the center of the universe. We learned how to draw/design our own mandalas.  It was a lot of fun to watch how each mandala was unique to each student no two mandalas were the same.
