I hope you had a wonderful holiday break. It was so nice seeing all of you at conferences. I truly enjoyed watching the students share their progress and goals with you. I am so proud of all that they have accomplished.
The students came back from break rested and ready to rock.
In reading, students are meeting in their skills groups. This week they all did a first read with informational text. This goes along with our writing unit. In their groups, students will be doing close reads with focus on vocabulary, finding main ideas and non-fiction features.
In math, we continue to work on unit 3. The students are working on multi-digit addition and subtraction story problems.
In science, students built cars and are going to be conducting distance races. They are using engineering skills to test their models.
In writing this week, we continue to practice writing informational text. Pairs of student went on tours of different rooms in the building. They drew and labeled sketches of the rooms they were assigned. Students are currently writing descriptive and informative essays about their rooms.
We are wrapping up 2017 and gearing up for 2018!
