Social Studies: To wrap up our unit on maps, the students were asked to complete a project based learning activity. They were given the task to design a place for community members to go and have fun. They needed to create a model made entirely from recycled materials along with a detailed map. Keep an eye out for your child’s project to appear on their Seesaw account soon!
Reading: Our class enjoyed several great books during Read Across America Week! We focused on identifying character traits and finding proof in the books to support our thinking.
Writing: This week we began publishing one of our nonfiction stories. The students decided on a story that they would like to revise and edit, and then they worked on getting that story ready for readers to enjoy. I’m thrilled with everyone’s effort, and I can’t wait to see their finished pieces!
Math: Graphing has been the focus in math this week. We have learned about tally charts, picture graphs, and bar graphs.
