WHAT'S HAPPENING

Math: This week we continued working on fractions. We practiced writing fractions and identifying other kinds of fractions: thirds, fifths, etc.


Reader's Workshop: This week we have combined time with science to work more on outer space. We have read many different books and learned lots of interesting facts about the planets.


Writer's Workshop: This week we wrapped up our final writing unit. Students selected their favorite piece to revise and publish. We had our final publishing party. Students loved reading their friends' stories!


Science: We focused on the planets in our solar system this week. We learned an acronym (My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Nachos) to remember the order of the planets. We also learned facts about all 8 of the planets.

LEADERS IN ROOM 108

This week we spent Thursday focusing on Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw! Field Day was a blast and we loved enjoying different stations playing and exercising.
