I hope you had a restful fall break and you are ready to get back into the swing of things. As we transition into Quarter 2, work becomes much more difficult. A good night’s rest, a healthy snack and great attendance will help you succeed.
This week in review:
Math- 4th grade will continued to work on addition/ subtraction problems. We will be practicing our regrouping skills in standard computations, word problems and using perimeter for the rest of the quarter. We started a fun Bloxels unit that stretches across math and writing.
5th graders are working hard on converting whole numbers with decimals to fractions. We have been adding & subtracting decimals with and without regrouping.
Reading- Our new read aloud, Prisoner B-3087 is going well. We are addressing 5th grade standards by reading this non-fiction book as a whole group. Goals & objectives as well as the reading lab are also being done.
Writing-Our Bloxels unit is under way. We are having so much fun with Larry & Gary and their cast of characters. We looked into character development and transferred that into an art form. Students sketched out on a 13×13 grid what their character looked like. Next week we will be reviewing setting and event, also using Bloxels as a review. Students will be writing a 45 minute prompt on a narrative story during as well.
Lots of creativity going on!
I see Sonic!
Recognize this Bow-Tie-Tuesday guy?
Social Studies- It’s Revolutionary! War, that is. We began our Revolutionary War unit and will continue working in the past for the next couple of weeks.
Queen Edwards came to our class and taxed our colonists. Her parliament was more than happy to accept the payments from the tax collectors.
The quotes were great! 😃🤣😂
“How am I going to pay my bills?!”
“Please don’t chop my head off!”
“Jingle, Jingle, Jingle, listen to all that money going into my bank account. This brings me such joy!”
“WE have no joy!”
“This tax charge is evil!”
