Reading

We just finished reading folktales. We learned about theme, which is the moral or lesson that we learn in the story. Some students created a Chatterpix on the theme of a book that they chose. Check a few of them out on our website!

Next week, we will be working on comparing and contrasting texts.

Graphing Unit

Last week, we completed a graphing unit. We enjoyed participating in many fun activities! Students created a Graphing project on Wixie. Ask them to check it out! Next week, we will be working on patterns, arrays and two-step word problems.

We had the opportunity to Skype with the inventor of the Doorbot! He was on the show Shark Tank!

We are currently working out our Skeletal System unit!
