Greetings from Room 116!
What a windy, wintry few weeks we have had! I hope that everyone is managing to stay safe and warm during this chilly period. Despite the cold air and snow days, we have accomplished a lot. Here is a brief outline of all our great work:
ELA: We finished our realistic fiction books and began designing game boards to go with them – a fun way to enhance our comprehension.
Math: We started our fraction module and learned that the denominator always tells us the number of equal parts in the whole, while the numerator tells us how many parts.
Science/SS: We began investigating different biomes. This research will serve as the basis for a long-term writing project.
Other: We concluded our engineering projects in Library and worked on related Google Power Points during Technology.
We ended the week with a pizza party and class viewing of “Milo and Otis,” a lovely movie about friendship, perseverance, and courage.
Best wishes to all for an amazing February vacation! See you on Monday, February 27th.
P.S. Remember to read over vacation and record your activities!!
