This week in...
Math: We utilized our money sense to aid us in learning about decimals. We will be working with decimals in the tenths place and the hundredths place. The class also learned how to plot decimals on a number line, which will help them next week as we compare decimals. On Friday, the class participated in the second exemplar of the year.
Writing: We have spent the week gathering more seed story ideas for personal narratives. Students learned the importance of short lists to spark ideas for stories and we created a blueprint of our homes/important places that hold many memories that are helpful for writing. Next week, we will focus on qualities of powerful personal narrative writing and how to "show, not tell".
Reading: This week we continued our novel study of The Tiger Rising, which encouraged readers to continue reading intensely, connecting ideas and asking questions while reading. The class also experienced what it means to envision the story. We acted out important scenes from our read aloud and then students were able to pick out an important moment from their books and complete an envisionment activity.
Social Studies: We have begun our study of the different regions of Texas. We will continue this work next week.
