The Mitten...

We read two versions of the story, THE MITTEN. One was written by Jan Brett and the other by Alvin Tresselt. We compared how the two stories were alike and how they were different. Then we brought in our own mittens. We guessed how many Uni-Fix cubes might fit inside our mittens, then we stuffed the mittens with as many cubes as we could. We dumped them all out, grouped them into 10's & 1's and found out our totals. It's amazing how many of those cubes can fit inside a mitten. ;-)
Take a look at us working nicely with our partners:

We're Back...

Today we returned from our "Winter Break". It seemed like a long time to be away from school. It was so good to see all our friends. We got to write about our favorite gifts or something fun we did while we were away from school. We are excited to see what the new year will bring to us!
