Unit of Inquiry: Form and Function
Through integration of reading and writing non-fiction books, we have been studying animals and plants. Currently, we are focused on form and exploring the following questions… How are plants and animals like others of the same kind? How are plants and animals like their parents?
Mathematics: Story Problems
We are exploring different strategies for solving addition and subtraction story problems. We use acting it out and visualizing to figure out if the story is about having more or less. This helps us decide if it is an addition problem or a subtraction problem. Below are some strategies we have learned to use, named after the student who showed us that strategy.
