Mrs. Stahl's Class
January 15, 2016
In math, the class has started to dive, heavily, into fractions. We discussed equivalent, least common denominator and greatest common factors. Unfortunately, some are struggling with this because they do not have their multiplication facts down yet. Please work with your child at home so they can continue to be successful in class at math time.
In science we continued Scientific Inquiry. This is a heavily tested area on the spring MAP test. We will conduct mini experiments, starting next week, so the students can have a better understanding of this process.
The American Revolution has begun in our class! I love how the class likes to listen to social studies as it's a juicy adventure story. I have found that it is easier to relate to the students by turning the standards they need to master into a story. They seem to grasp the information so much better than reading the online textbook. We are completing an interactive notebook so we have a visual learning source as well. The British will soon be coming!!!
It shouldn't be a shock to you...
