This week during math our scientists have been working on classifying quadrilaterals, fractions of a whole, fractions bigger than a whole, and multiplication facts. In Science they have been learning all about the different climates of the world. During Language Arts, they have kept their writing skills on fire: you can almost see smoke coming from those pencils, that is how much they are writing, confidence levels rising as they answer more and more open response questions successfully. Ask them anything about text features, character traits, compare and contrast or cause and effect, these scientists have an answer. We have also started analyzing poetry, learning to read between the lines, getting the deeper meaning of some poems. These scientists are using their investigation skills to the fullest and sharing beautiful insights. The enthusiasm for learning and the perseverance they are showing are incredible to see. There is no doubt in my mind that, regardless how difficult the state exams will be, our scientists will work tirelessly to show their best knowledge and skills, and for that I am extremely proud.
