We had our last I-move on Tuesday. We had four terrific weeks up at Trapps. Thanks for having your kids dressed properly and thanks to those who helped out. We couldn’t do it without you!
Enjoy the weekend,
The last two weeks of math focused on fractions and measurement. Students looked at fractions on a number line and learned how to make models to prove comparisons of two fractions.
The last module of this unit focused on measuring a beanstalk and its leaves, than using this data to make a line plot of the length of the leaves. Students practiced using a ruler to the quarter of an inch.
We finished up the unit by taking the end of the unit assessment and will start the new unit called Multiplication, Division and Area next week.
Students have been learning about persuasive writing. They have been looking at topics and working on reasons and elaboration which might support their thinking. On Thursday, the students picked their topics. Ask your child what topic they have picked and discuss with them why they picked this topic and what their plan is to support their position or opinion.
We have started a new mini unit on Magnets. Students have been experimenting with various types of magnets and are discovering the push and pull of magnets and how magnets attract certain types of metals.
