What's Happening in Mrs. Muegge's Class

Big image

READING

  • We have been learning about inference. We have done many activities to show our understanding of inference. Ask your kiddos to see their Where Am I? activity- they were great!
  • We are almost finished with the book "Holes"- it has gone great with our Realistic Fiction unit in writing! The students have really enjoyed this book. We will watch the movie when finished and compare and contrast.
  • We will continue our daily 5 activities where we will read, write, and do word work.

Math

  • Students have begun Topic 7- Multiplying by 2 Digit Numbers
  • Please continue to practice multiplication facts at home. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT! The further we go into multiplication, and eventually division the harder it will be for students who struggle with basic facts.

WRITING

  • We are in the midst of our Realistic Fiction writing unit. Students have created their sloppy copies.
  • We will begin editing our stories and working on catchy hooks.

Science/Social Studies

We finished up our labs and a lot of fun conducting experiments using the scientific method.


We will begin our Economy Inquiry Unit, where the students will learn about the economy through hands-on learning experiences. They will work in a group to decide on a business idea, write a business plan, produce a product, make an advertisement, and sell their items at a Market Day event.

Look for more details coming soon!!

Genius Hour

Genius Hour is in full swing. We have some students ready to present what they have been researching while others are working on presentation, and still others are researching! Genius Hour is one of the best times of the week! Students get to choose what they would like to learn about and then present it in any way they choose! They work at their own pace and they are having so much fun they don't even know they are learning! :)
