Math: We are starting a new module! It begins with rounding and estimating. We will also be working with students on tracking their data from the previous module and setting goals for this unit. We are excited to see their growth other this year as we start tracking our progress more intentionally. In class today, students took a "benchmark" for Think Through Math. Students are now able to get on at home! A parent letter with a more detailed explanation is attached to this email.
Science: We are finishing up presentations on the scientific method and they are looking AMAZING! Students had the choice to make a poster, trifold, or google slides (similar to Powerpoint). We are starting our matter unit next week! Yay!
