January 11th - 15th
This coming week students will continue identifying key details and main idea with text on the Oregon trail and pioneers. We will also review our learnings from weeks 1-3 in Unit 3 in preparation for our district unit test next week.
- Written response: Solving Number Stories
- Break-Apart Strategy (https://youtu.be/REcvjGx0PYQ - START at the 6:40 marker)
My goal is to have the data for you by the weekend and next newsletter.
This week students worked together to learn about vertebrates and invertebrates. In their groups they used beads, washers, and pipe cleaners to build a model of a backbone to better understand what makes an animal a vertebrate.
Students also worked in groups to sort a bag of random objects different ways. This activity was a big hit as students walked away with the big idea that animals have different characteristics that are used to classify them.
Please encourage your students to dress appropriately for cold weather. Not only is it cold outside but our room can also be quite chilly too.
