Learning in C2...
Next week, we are going to be changing gears. We'll be moving into character analysis. More specifically, we are looking at the standard RL 2.3 - "I can tell how characters in a story respond to parts in a story."
Writing - We are now focusing on Opinion Writing. During our focus on Opinion Writing it is important that your child:
States his/her opinion in the beginning
States details and reasons to support his/her opinion using link words like "because" and "also."
Provide a concluding statement.
Math- This week we have been continuing our study of shapes, but have learned how to apply fractional concepts to it. We have been focusing on partitioning rectangles into rows and columns, creating equal-sized squares.
Next week, we'll look into the division of shapes a bit deeper. For instance, learners will be required to divide rectangles and circles into halves, thirds, and fourths.
For more information or to work on this at home, follow this link - https://learnzillion.com/resources/72619-partition-rectangles-and-circles-into-equal-shares-2-g-a-3
Project Work- Classes are gathering information about their topics through field expert visits, books, observation, and online sources. As learners are ready, they will be guided toward the design phase of the project.
Valentine Celebration! Stack the hearts!
Enjoying time with parents and classmates during our Valentine's celebration.
