Week October 15-19, 2018
Congratulations to all my students on a job well done for their hard work on “Creating Their Own Culture Presentation.” I really enjoyed the imagination and creativity each student brought to their new found “Culture.”
Here’s what’s happening this week:
- Our PYP 2nd unit is How the World Works-an inquiry into the natural world and its laws; the interaction between the natural world (physical and biological) and human societies.
- Writing-our students will be continuing opinion writing and argumentation. Students will learn to use graphic organizers to plan and write five paragraph essays independently. We will start slow with a guided essay about a topic we all know. Next, students will be given creative control and develop their own ideas with well thought out reasons and details to support them.
- Math- our students will be continuing about the Metric Unit Conversions in addition and subtraction word problems involving metric length, mass and capacity.
- Reading-our students will be planning for a research project, cooperative learning research teams to organize and plan their journey. Also, tackling tricky vocabulary through reading, note-taking and conversation.
Thanks for your continued support and cooperation. All the best…
