In math, we spent the week taking apart number stories, identifying the information given and practicing how to label and explain their work. The Unit 4 test is on Monday. We completed the study guide in school on Thursday and everyone is bringing home a corrected copy to review over the weekend. I met with each student about what skills to review and some students are also bringing home their math journal with pages marked for extra practice. Thank you to Mrs. McPhillips for helping with math games this Friday!
We continue to study the Southeast region in social studies. Students researched highlights of this region and are making mini-books with the information they collected.
This week students continued to read and discuss Shiloh. They worked on listening to each other and keeping a conversation going in their book discussion groups.
We watched part of the inauguration and the swearing in of President Trump and Vice President Pence today. We were able to see the Supreme Court Justices, Speaker of the House, the Capitol and all the Americans gathered on the mall to participate in this important event in our country’s history. We also listened to the inaugural poem, “One Today” from the 2013 inauguration.
