Reading and Writing
In writing, we have learned four specific strategies writers use to teach readers in nonfiction: using a variety of diagrams, comparisons, compound sentences, and twin sentences. We practiced incorporating these strategies into our nonfiction chapter books. Ask your child about these as well as what he/she is writing his/her book about.
Then, we made the connection as a class between open number lines and measurement tools. We used rulers to add and subtract. Today, students were challenged to show their skills to add and subtract. Student were given the below menu and could have used any strategy to solve the problems. Students made a short video showing their thinking that you'll receive soon. When you watch your child's video, notice what strategy he/she uses and if this differs from what you've noticed in the past. Also notice how comfortable he/she is explaining their use of the strategy and how he/she solved the problem.
