What We Will Be Learning About This Week...
Get ready to dive into some serious culture study! For the next few weeks, our students will be researching through Culture Grams (online resource), different cultural traditions from around the world. Each day, our class will focus on one country’s customs, fill out anchor charts, read various fiction and non-fiction books and develop an All About book on a favorite culture of study.
This week we will begin our review and exploration of fractions. This unit will be three weeks long and we’ll start by deciding fair shares then focus on halves, fourths, and eighths using a variety of models. While this seems quite simple, students are sometimes unsure of how to create the most efficient model of a fraction when asked.
This week we will explore parts of speech, specifically nouns and pronouns.
Students will receive new spelling sorts this week. We will glue and have a spelling quiz on January 17th over the words received today.
