Humanities: This week we started our Global Read Aloud novel study. We introduced ourselves to our partner classes using flipgrid (5.4) or padlet (5.3). We completed the week 1 readings. Students are sketching and writing headlines as we follow the stories of 3 different refugees, in 3 different time periods. In Social Studies we learned about the Famous 5 and were introduced to some of the requirements of the first independent guided inquiry. Coming up, students will choose an event, person or group and begin their inquiry and we will continue reading, “Refugee."
Science: This week in science we explored how energy is transferred in the ecosystem through food chains and food webs. We also looked at what niche an organism has in its food chain. Students have been working on making a food chain for their adaptations research organism. This assignment will be due on Monday afternoon. Students will have a couple more periods to complete this work however your child may have taken their iPad home this weekend to do a little extra work on this. Looking ahead to next week there will be a Wetlands check-in on Thursday. We will be working together in class to prepare for this.
Math: This week we looked at regrouping. Students have been challenged to write a number in more that one way using regrouping. This challenge has been posted in Seesaw and is due on Monday. They will have class time on Monday to work on it. Our next topic of study will be estimation and rounding.
