This week in class we did a lot of research about scientific inventions and discoveries. A lot of reading and note taking using key ideas was done in the library. Key words were identified and then used to make up our own sentences.
This week’s math focus moved from factors, factor pairs and multiples into division and divisibility rules that we will be learning more about next week. Students created posters about their understanding of factors and began to express themselves on video. We will be officially starting mathletics next week in addition to continuing work with factors and larger numbers and puzzles.
Our writing workshop continued this week, and students showed that they can really put together all of the information they’ve learned so far. We now have chosen a seed story and next week will be on the road to publishing that seed story.
Next week we look forward to more math challenges, the road to publishing writing in our Unit of Inquiry and writer’s workshop and to beginning our literature circles.
Have a great weekend!
