Our new novel is Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech. I highly recommend borrowing a library copy or finding a paperback copy for home. While all students have a copy to use in class, many students have benefited from rereading or pre-reading at home. If you have any questions, please let me know!
Check out our website for resources and activities that we have done in class! We continue to add weekly.
Students are working hard to their How to writing piece! We are currently in the editing stages using our Chrome books and other devices to peer edit from around the room! (Have them show you at home using their Colonial Google Drive account!!!) Once all students have received feedback from one other students and myself, they will begin the final copy and presentation preparation process. More information on their presentations will come home in the near future!
We will be working on Multiplying and Dividing Fractions over the next few weeks as we draw to the end of Unit 4.
Our next unit focus is decimals. This learning map will be located on our website under Math (Units 4-6) when we begin in a few weeks! Students will use their fractions and percent knowledge as we learn to compare, order, add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals.
We will also learn how to convert fractions to decimals AND decimals to percents, creating real life connections with data from the current NCAA basketball season!
Students are continuing their study of Mixtures and Solutions with a focus on saturated solutions. Click here to access resources to help with the creation of connections at home, including vocabulary and science stories!
As I wrote last time, our next stop in Social Studies will include the Great Depression and Immigration! Due to the fact that we "flip-flop" between Science and Social Studies and our current focus is Science, look for more specific examples of student work in the near future.
