MATH: We are working on Chapter 3, Multiplying 2-digit Numbers. We have been learning multiple methods to do this successfully. Students have a choice as to what method they feel most comfortable using.
ELA/S.S.: We are learning about Native American culture. This includes comparing and contrasting texts, making inferences, and using close reading strategies. We are reading the novel “Eagle Song” in class. Students are currently working on their Longhouse/Wigwam Take Home Project; this also includes an essay (due November 10th). We will be utilizing all of the strategies we are learning to begin a Persuasive Writing piece.
SCIENCE: We just finished exploring energy through collision, renewable and nonrenewable resources, and energy transfer. We are currently learning about the life cycles of animals and plants, as well as studying their behavior.
HANDWRITING: We are diligently learning how to form cursive letters to make letters and words smoothly without lifting the pencil.
HEALTH: We are currently focusing on compassion, empathy, and sympathy.
RELIGION: We have just finished studying The Lord’s Prayer. In this chapter, we explored the meaning of each line of the prayer and began learning the beginning in Sign Language (Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name).
