Moments in Ms. M's
What's happening in our room...
Art Show Tomorrow
Here's what we've been up to...
We focused on main idea and details and the students focused on identifying the main idea and finding details that really support. We read a biographical piece about Leonardo da Vinci.
We continue with decimal addition and discussing properties of addition and how they can help us add decimals mentally. We mixed in a few days of math workshop centers and some whole group work.
We created logins for a great practice website called SplashMath. Your students have logins and can practice our skills at home if they choose.
We started persuasive speech writing this week. This will ultimately connect with a pretty project that will be introduced next week. We will be connecting our reading curriculum, biographies, with a writing curriculum, persuasive speeches. Look for more information coming home next week!
We started social studies again this week. We are beginning to dissect the major documents that are important to the development of our country's freedom and government. We are starting with the Declaration of Independence. Next week we will really dig in to what the words of the document mean!
