Week of January 19th

Reader's Theatre

We have spent the past two weeks working on character, setting, and plot in the stories we read. We took our work a little deeper and began analyzing character traits and character development. We focused on the behaviors of the characters in our stories and how they changed from beginning to end. We used evidence from the stories to support our ideas. We also took on the role of different characters in Reader's Theater which the students loved! Each group performed a different story for their classmates. They did an excellent job!

The Tale of the Lazy People Sneak Peek

Understanding Division

We wrapped up Chapter 5, Understanding Division, this week. Students took their test today. It will come home on Monday for you to sign and return. Next week we begin multiplication and division patters. Students will begin to work on memorizing their multiplication and division facts. First is is multiplying and dividing by 2. We will work on fact fluency in the classroom and students will track their progress with the multiplication chart hanging in the room.

STEM - Simple Machines

Finally! We were able to use our simple machines. Students used a single & double pulley, an inclined plane, and a wheel and axel to text the amount of force required to lift a given load. Students used a spring scale and measured force in Newtons. They recorded their results and will use what they learned to build a simple machine to do an important job next week... lifting potatoes!
