Academic update


We have been very busy since spring break...

Writing:
We finished our Realistic Fiction unit last week. They students loved sharing their box set series with their peers. They all worked so hard on bringing their stories to life and creating a series. Their work will be displayed in the hallway the rest of this week. 

Now they are writing Fantasy! They get to think 'outside of the box' and create pretend characters and write about adventures that would not typically happen in real life. They are having a lot of fun with these stories.

Math: 
They have worked so hard on place value this past quarter and now they have moved to measurement and telling time. The students have used non standard and standard measurement tools and can tell time to the hour and to the half hour. 

Projects: 
Our class is learning about Weather. The students are keeping track of the daily temperature and weather. After they have collected their information, they will create a graph of their data. Finally they will interpret their graph. 

As always, we are working on reaching our goals and using the 7 Habits each day!
