Veterans and Freaky Fridays

What a busy week! Here is a quick break down:
  • GENIUS HOUR! We just finished our second Genius Hour. Today we mostly practiced using our Google Drives. They also were able to surf the web and find different websites to support their inquiries.
  • Math: We finished Unit 4! They kids understanding of Multiplication has grown exponentially.
  • Writing: As much as I would've liked to move into Research Writing, we really needed another week in Narratives. We have a few still typing, but we are ready to move forward!
  • Reading: Red, Green and Yellow! How does a reader ask a question? This week, we spent a lot of time learning open-ended questions and how to take our answers to a new level.
