Wow we've been doing so many cool things this week that I couldn't keep up posting them!
In Daily 5 we've been learning reading strategies that will help us with our comprehension, accuracy, fluency, and vocabulary.
In unit 7 we are working with fractions. The pattern blocks shown below help us to visualize fractions of a whole, but during her free time Talia makes a beautiful pattern/design with them!
Also, today we spent time cutting out fraction cards.
In science this week we began our Structures of Life unit by discussing plant growth. We planted our own plants, and watched a powerpoint on vegetables. Students impressed me with how much they knew about vegetables!
