Math: This week we learned how to do long division. People struggled to learn the steps fully. We also learned how to show our steps in another way. People found out that using the method was way easier than long division.
Reading: this week we wrote character traits in our books. Students focused all week on finding a trait in their book.Students had a lot of sticky notes in their book to show their character trait
Writing: This week we started drafting our final publish for Personal narrative. We took our last writing piece grade and are going to make a final copy that determines our grade on this writing unit.
Mr. Basham here:
We also launched our "Where We Are In Place and Time" Literacy Circles (book groups). Students should be bringing home a non-fiction book about the Revolutionary War time period. They have agreed with their groups to read a certain number of pages over the weekend. They should be writing down notes that relate to our "Perspectives" line of inquiry, as well as any cause & effect relationships they notice.
