Week's Worth of Learning
In Reading and Writing we have been talking and learning a lot about the theme of CHANGE. It has been a HEAVY topic to discuss and the kids have had some quality examples to share.
Memoirs are our first "official" published pieces that we are working toward in writing. We are looking toward the great authors such as Gary Paulsen and Ralph Fletcher to guide our thinking and be our models in reading.
This week we worked on the skill of "trade-first" and "partial-sums" (or as we may remember, adding and subtracting!"). We will continue to add and subtract multi-digit problems next week, and work toward converting measurements with the weeks to come.
Students have been moved on to Mr. Twedt's Class and are learning about South America; the resources, physical features, and issues and challenges this country may face.
We continue to discuss variables - and how changing one variable at a time can affect the outcome of an experiment
