Greetings from Room 116!
Hopefully, everyone enjoyed a fabulous February break. Thank you for helping us to return ready for learning. We were certainly very busy this past week:
ELA: We worked on the “aw/o” spelling pattern, along with “pronouns.” In addition, we published personal book recommendations during Writer’s Workshop. During Reader’s Workshop, we continued to examine how characters change over time and how setting impacts character development within our historical fiction book groups.
Math: We learned about fractions on the number line both within and beyond a whole.
Science/SS: We extended our understanding of biological evolution in Science. We also learned more about the colonial era in Social Studies.
Other: We practiced using some iPad tools for our upcoming MCAS tests. Please note that the ELA assessment will be administered on 4/14 and 4/15, while the Math assessment will take place on 5/12 and 5/13.
Best wishes to all for a restorative weekend! I look forward to seeing many of you next week!
