We had a good solid week with very few distractions! However, I am putting off the test on landform in social studies again. I'm sorry, I know a lot of people studied! The veteran's assembly ran longer than I thought and I had to shuffle time so that I don't have to do Friday Folders on Monday again.
This week our reading strategy was determining importance. When we read, we take in a lot of information, and one of the most vital skills is being able to determine what is important to remember and what is not. This skill will be useful throughout the year and in all of our subjects, and the kids did a great job learning and practicing it!
This week we learned to format writing correctly on the computer in order to make our stories look professional.
Double digit multiplication is here! It's always an uphill climb, but everyone is really starting to get the hang of it! Keep practicing those times tables!
The kids did an extended experiment looking at measuring, recording, and predicting magnetic force this week.
Last week was all about natural landforms, and this week the class has been researching man-made landmarks. Each student has been finding information about a famous American landmark and they presented them today.
