We are in our final week of “where we are in time and place” unit! Please join us for our climate fair on Wednesday. 3A & 3B will be at level 5 from 8:00-8:30 and 3C & 3D will be there from 8:30-9:00. The lines of inquiry this unit are listed below. Please look for learning in these areas and ask questions about these topics listed.
- Difference between weather and climate (CHANGE, FORM)
- Types of climates (FORM)
- How people are affected by natural hazards (CAUSATION)
Mathematicians will begin by revisiting the commutative property, and studying familiar facts from previous learning to identify known facts using units of 6, 7, 8, and 9. They realize that they already know more than half of their facts by recognizing, for example, that if they know 2 × 8, they also know 8 × 2 through commutativity.
Writers will be wrapping up the learning they have been doing within writing Nonfiction books this week. They will choose a book they have written within the unit and revise, edit and publish to share with an audience.
We have one more week of non fiction reading before we begin our next unit. Readers are working on stop and jots and recording their thinking in their own words.
