Happy Birthday Maya!!
Our Day Today
Today we read and compared the story of The Three Little Pigs. It was really neat to hear the original version and then compare it with what we were used to hearing! We tried a little perspective with this story as well and tried to see it through the wolf's eyes.
We integrated our writing in with our Inquiry Unit today. After reading The Three Little Pigs, we discussed the reasons why the straw house and the stick house were not the best of choices for the pigs to construct their homes out of. The brick house did the job of keeping the wolf out the best. We talked about what it was about the brick house that made it so strong and then added some other materials to a list that would also make for a "Wolf-Proof House."
This week we start exploring shapes. We will begin by talking about the similarities and differences between the different 2D shapes. We are also talking about what makes up each shape and how to use them together to create bigger designs when using Pattern Blocks!
