Autumn is officially here! It was chilly this week and we were able to enjoy some cool fresh air in our classroom. Our classroom was full of energy as this week we started practicing for the Celebration of Learning.
Writing: We did our first proper peer reviews on our paragraph writing! Students learned the dos and do nots for peer reviews. They also used our classroom technology to find information! As for grammar we used our EDE grammar worksheets to focus on word choice and punctuation.
Math: For math, students worked on partitioning. At first, it was a difficult concept for them to understand, but after a few activities and examples, most of them did well on our weekly quiz. We also used partitioning to connect to inquiry by looking at making change and currency exchange.
Next week: We will continue or Russia exchange and start our informational posters for the 5 senses! We also have a few new friends in our classroom! Students will begin observing, caring for, and writing about our new river animals in our class aquarium!
