We finished our counting money by looking at the different bills (paper money). Paper money was fairly easy to associate and dollar amount for obvious reasons. We did examine the different looks of these bills. We then combined the paper money and coins.
We came from break looking at parts of the leaf, parts of the flower, and parts of the tree. We had a discussion on what makes a living thing, a living thing. We learned that all living things need to:
Be able to reproduce
Be able to grow
Eat or take in nutrients
Breathe or exchange gases
All living things need water
These criterion differentiates my shoe from a bird or a pencil from my students. I posed the question “Are trees, plants, grass living things?” we went through the above criterion and determined Plants….
Reproduce via seeds
They need water and get nutrients from the soil
They exchange gases (take in Carbon Dioxide and expel Oxygen)
Due to the Christmas show rehearsals we will not be learning additional languages, sight words, or synonyms.
