Math

Mrs. Close's Class ~ The kids have been busy adding and subtracting fractions. At this point, the denominators have been the same. They have had to make a "move" to subtract. For example, when solving, 1-3/8, the kids covert the 1 to 8/8. 8/8-3/8 = 5/8. Then they took it even a step farther to change a mixed number into an improper fraction before subtracting.

PAWS ~ Well, the timing of editing and revising just didn't work out last week. We'll spend this week finishing up PAWS #11. Then we'll take a break from opinion writing and move on to a narrative piece.


SS ~ We are on the road to the American Revolution! We'll be using the book George vs George to help us learn about the war, the sides, the people, and eventually the new government.


Small Groups ~ Most groups started new books. The kids read Walk Two Moons will finish up tomorrow. Our goal is to finish the books by Spring Break.


Picture Book Friday ~ I'm looking for a 4C guy to read this Friday.
