During this full week of work students have been working with Models of Multiplication, using tiles to make area models and representing the models on paper to make posters with all the factors of a number. Additionally, students have played Splat! where two teams compete for the biggest amount of points by adding the products at the end of a round.
During reading workshop, students have learned to find text features on informational and fiction texts, and have compared different types of informational and fiction books. During writing, the students have continued gathering ideas by looking at the things they are good at, and making more lists out of some of those ideas. Also today we have been looking at "what's in a name", thinking about their first names, middle names, family names and pet names and the stories behind them. On Social Studies we have looked at the heroic story of the men and women that used their boats to rescue people fleeing from the area near the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks. And finally, last week we received the visit of Elba, this year's Spanish Aide that will be working with us on Mondays and Tuesdays. Take a look at this week's slideshow!
