Here's what went on this week...

Math: We continued adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators in topic 9. We will be finishing up this unit and starting adding and subtraction mixed number next week. Talking tidbits: Why do you need to multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number when making equivalent fractions? 

Social Studies: Students finished presenting their Glogster presentations. They all did a great job and taught us a lot about each colony. We watched a movie about King Phillip's War and we will be starting to talk about The American Revolution next week. Ms. Martin also came in to do a social lesson on perspective. Talking tidbits: How did pictures help us with perspective? 
Looking at photos to learn about perspective

Ava presenting about her colony

Science: We started doing some MCAS review for morning work. Our next unit is on plants. 

Reading: We continued reading  Bud, Not Buddy this week. We are discussing theme, figurative language, and character traits throughout the book. We will also be comparing and contrasting this book to others we've read.  Talking tidbits: What happened when Bud was late for breakfast at the mission? 

Writing: We did some writing in response to reading in Book Creator this week. Students reflected on events in Bud, Not Buddy. One of the questions was regarding what qualifies someone as an adult: age, experience, wisdom? Does Bud handle situations as an adult or a a child? 

Enjoy the weekend!
