This Week in Class

MATH: This week groups finished their work on graphing, area and perimeter, and multi-digit multiplication practice. We then started our whole class lessons on measurement. We discussed how to use a ruler to measure to the nearest half inch and customary units of length.

READING: Students continued their group literature circles this week. The students have been doing a wonderful job reading and working with their groups!

WRITING: We finished our poetry unit. Students were also able to share two of their favorite poems to the class. Lastly, we took our fictional narrative pre-assessment. This will be our last writing unit of the year.

SOCIAL STUDIES: We finished our unit on economics. We discussed renewable vs nonrenewable resources. We also talked about importing, exporting, and trading. Students then took our economy unit test.
