Now that our Science unit is finished we are back to Social and looking closely at the four countries of Peru, Tunisia, India and Ukraine. This time we are looking at, reading and discussing the geography of these countries. Today we looked at Peru's mountain and coastal regions.
This morning, new table groups were formed for the 3 weeks before spring break.
We also started something new for Language Arts, the students are going to be reading and performing parts in a reader's theatre. Today, they picked a script, read through it and then picked the part they would like to read. Reader's Theatre increases reading fluency as well as reading with expression.
In math, we started to look at division and how it is related to multiplication. Students used counters to show division sentences. They also used the multiplication table to help them figure out questions. Everyone is encouraged to continue memorizing their times tables at home. For mental math, most students have now moved onto the 3X tables. Ask your child where they are at.
In backpacks you will find the Animal Life Cycle test. The highest possible mark was 25.
