A busy week behind us and a chaotic one ahead!
This week we really dove into our unit of inquiry by using Seesaw to help us reflect on who we are as people and as community members. We thought about the roles we play in our commmunities and how we can contribute. We also began brainstorming how we could find out more about our community. Please please please take the opportunity to start recording on see saw the “student action” of your kids helping out in your home and around the community. Also, if they want to interview people around your community to know more about who they are and how they are helping, add that too!
In math, we continued to build our knowledge of numbers but using base ten blocks to help us construct numbers. We also learned how if we are chaotic while trying to solve problems, we will not be as successful as if we use different systems to check our own and each others work.
In reading students had their reading levels assessed and can begin using Razkids at home. Their passwords have been sent home with them today and the teacher name should be jnock0.
In writing, students have been adding talking, emotions, and their five senses to stretch out their stories. A big realization they came to this week was “we need to be telling every single thing that happened and every little detail from a short part of time”.
Brace yourselves for the typhoon!
