WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?

This week in math we started Unit 5, which focuses on adding and subtracting fractions. We learned about unit fractions and reviewed the parts of a fraction. We also compared fractions and practiced subtracting fractions. We will continue this unit in January. In our current IB planner, students are focusing their inquiry on Agents of Change. The central idea of this planner is that individuals have made contributions through language, science, and the arts. This week students began researching and taking notes for their report. We spent time discussing reliable websites and learned how to take good notes. We will continue our research next week and start writing our rough drafts. Students focused on reading more biographies during our literacy rotations this week. In language arts, we continued working on our poetry books. Our spelling list this week focused on words with different endings. There will be no spelling list or homework packet next week. We also celebrated the holidays with our first grade buddies. Students were also very anxious to get outside and enjoy all of the snow we got over the weekend. Winter break

Students are also encouraged to use the green bookmark they will receive next week in class to visit some wonderful academic links. Websites and directions are clearly listed on the bookmark. Some of these links include MCA practice, Study Island, and Think Central.
