This week we worked on multiple skills across all contents.
We are currently working on a "Zoo Exhibit" of sorts. Students have been researching animals and organizing interesting facts about them and their habitats. This information will be displayed and used to describe the biodiversity in ecosystems. It will also serve as the evidence that students will use to write an informational text.
In math, we are currently working on adding and subtracting decimal fractions. Students are encouraged to solve problems using an array of strategies. Multi-step word problems is something that we have worked on, we are currently working on, and will continue to work on.
Finally, in Social Studies, we are continuing our inquiry about the early colonies of America and we continue to practice empathy and respect as we consider other cultures and each other.
