March 28-April 1, 2016
Off to Unit 5 we go. The comprehension strategy of focus for weeks 1 and 2 will be summarizing narrative text. The students will read and work to identify the basics of somebody, wanted, but, so, and in the text. We will also be working on character's point of view in weeks 1 and 2. Students will have to infer based on the text to determine how the character thinks and/or feels. These concepts have been introduced before, but now we are working on mastery of the concept.
Then, we visit fractions again and locate them on a number line. We will also explore equivalent fractions.
Towards the end of the week, students will explore solid shapes (2-D and 3-D).
Unit 8 is a short unit and the test will be the week of April 4th.
A new game was introduced this past week. Using a deck of cards, students turned over a card, which would be a factor. On their bingo grid, students looked for a product that has the card number as a factor. If their card finds a product, then that space is covered. Keep playing until a BINGO is called.
More factor practice with a new game.

The students will be able to make more google slides for a project in our health and nutrition unit. Several groups have already emailed me what they have learned with My Plate. I know the newness will wear off, but it is awesome to see their excitement while sharing their new content knowledge.
