Classroom Community Updates
In Math, students worked on their multiplication skills and then took a Multiplication Quiz. This week, we will be focusing on division, number sense, and word problems. Be prepared for our Chapter 2 Celebration of Learning next week! In Reading, students finished our Launch unit by applying their Notice and Note strategies to independent texts. This week, we will focus on responding to a reading prompt using evidence from the text. In Writing, students finished our first unit and they have worked very hard to build their writing stamina and writing community in our first few weeks. We will now move into our second unit on the Writing Process. In Science, students put it all together and learned that the earth’s tilt causes seasons. This week, we will work on our final models and apply our knowledge to different situations.
