Week 29.

We’ve been exploring equivalent fractions using fraction bars, rectangles, circles, and number lines. We continue to practice our math multiplication facts and the children have been making steady progress.

Week 28.

This week has been all about fractions, writing, and typing. We used fraction circles to explore fractions and to order them from least to greatest. Then we transitioned to fractions on the number line. We continue to practice our narrative and text-based responses in preparation for state testing.

Week 27.

Our focus this week has been on writing narrative text-based essays. The children are working on continuing stories and today we started talking about rewriting a story from a different character’s point of view. We also reviewed math concepts in groups to prepare for our math test today.

Week 26.

The English Language Arts MCAS computer-based test is fast approaching! We learned how to take notes on a separate paper (instead of annotating directly on the text) and how to use our notes to answer multiple choice questions.

Week 25.

Today Mrs. Nuccio read us “Horton Hatches the Egg” in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. One of our students also presented over the loudspeaker about the country of Turkey. We continue to learn about fractions, measurement, and writing about texts.
