We continue to learn the multiplication facts and using these facts in our problem solving. The students have learned and continue to work with equal groups, repeated addition and arrays.
The students continue to work in their reading groups. They are reading and discussing various mystery novels. In addition to the book groups, students have been practicing identifying and restating the main idea and theme in a non-fiction and fiction text. Also, students are finishing up their 3 paragraph personal narratives. You can see these docs in their email and we will also have a book at conferences. In grammar, we are focusing on singular and plural pronouns.
