Social Studies & Writing: Project Based Learning
This week our class finished up our social studies and writing projects. The personal narratives are published, and many of the students shared them on their Seesaw accounts. The models that were made from recyclables represent the setting of their story, and their maps are all complete, as well. Each map represents the setting, and includes: a title, map key, and a compass rose. Those projects were also shared and explained on Seesaw, too. This was a fun activity that incorporated many of our standards, and the students sure had a lot of fun!
Math: Place Value
This chapter covers quite a bit of information, and so far we have learned about different ways to represent numbers. Here are a few examples:
- 100 = 1 hundred, 10 tens, or 100 ones
- Expanded form: 237 = 200 + 30 + 7
- 742= 7 hundreds, 4 tens, and 2 ones
This week in addition to reviewing story elements we worked on visualizing. We know that good readers visualize the story in their heads as they read. A few of the good read alouds that we enjoyed this week were: How I Became a Pirate, A Bad Case of the Stripes, and Jabari Jumps.
