Last week our literacy teacher, Mrs. McFadden, came into the class to talk to the students about word choice and by simply changing word choice to more interesting descriptions, it can really improve the quality of our writing pieces.
The students are working on a story retell of the picture book, Gilbert in Deep. We discuss the characters, setting, problem and solution of the story.
We are continuing to develop our knowledge of fractions....numerators, denominators, benchmarks, comparing and ordering, equivalency, and fractions of a set. You hear me say it each week...practice your math facts, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
