PAWS Pride

PAWS Pride

This week our PAWS Pride lesson focused on conflict resolution. The students discussed some simple rules to solve a problem and watched a short video on what can happen if these steps aren't followed. The activities will allow the students an ability to prevent, manage and resolve interpersonal conflicts in constructive ways.

Math by Ashlyn

The WALT (We Are Learning To/That) statements for this unit are fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers, for Mrs. Hassles class it it to use place values and properties to multiply mentally, and for Mrs. Jacobs class it is using stratigies and compensation. On Tuesday, we learned more about exponents and multiplicatioin! Mrs. Price taught us more about multiplying with exponents! On Wednesday, we learned what an overestimate and an underestimate was! It's basically when the estimate is over the real answer or under the real answer. On Thursday, we were taught the "Partial Product" multiplication method! It is a new way to multiply for this year! And on Friday, we practiced more of the new "Partial Products" method. Well, thats it for this week! I was so glad to tell you about what we did in math this week! :)
