Welcome back from spring break! Students came back refreshed and ready to learn. They are really showing the accumulation of their growth this week. They are working and following directions independently, trying out more sophisticated writing techniques and becoming aware of themselves as learners and friends. It's a wonderful time of the year!
We finished up our metric measurement unit. In this unit we covered addition and subtraction word problems, measuring with cm and plotting data on a line plot. Overall, students did really well on line plots, addition word problems and measuring. A goal for the end of the year is to pay close attention to word problems and increase our fluency in subtraction problems.
We are starting our second unit of non-fiction writing. We reviewed important text features that mentor authors use and thought of creative ways to start our stories.
In conjunction with our non-fiction writing, we have kicked off our non-fiction book clubs! Students group together in groups from 2-4 to read the same non-fiction book. The groups get to pick their group name and practice discussing their reading and solidifying their learning from their discussions. Students are excited to learn and dive into their books!
We kick off on Monday! Stay tuned. I would still love one or two volunteers for Tuesday afternoon if anyone is available.
On that note: SHOE BOXES! Elizabeth Arzani is asking for shoe boxes for a whale-related art project. If you have any bring them in. Thanks!
