Reading Workshop

This week we worked with our Literary Non Fiction book club teams to read about a topic of interest. After reading, we shared facts about air topic and asked questions in order to have a deeper understanding of the topic. Finally, they will present what they’ve learned about the topic with the class in a “Fishbowl Discussion” 

Writing Workshop

We are drafting and drawing within the writing process of our Literary Nonfiction books.  We have used mentor texts to guide our decisions in making a plan and choosing just right paper to create a book about the topic we are passionate about. There has been high interest around this genre of combining fiction and nonfiction elements…ask your child about the decisions they have made as authors so far within their books! This has been our most favorite writing unit ever!

Math Workshop

As mathematicians we moved forward this week by beginning to work with number lines that have endpoints other than 0 and 1. Then, we gained an understanding that a fraction must be the same size but may not always have the same shape. Below is some practice using fractions on a Human Number Line!

Unit of Inquiry

We had an amazing time learning about the endangered animals in our area at the Futian Mangrove Ecological Park. We are continuing to explore ways to take action for our current unit. Ask your child ways you can help at home and in your daily lives to support endangered animals.
