Reading: In Reading, students reviewed how to use their schema to make predictions and connections while reading. Students also learned strategies for solving tricky words by using the context of the reading and by chunking. The read aloud for the week was "Help!" by Holly Keller.
Math: In Math, students learned strategies to help them solve harder subtraction facts quickly. Students also reviewed the term "difference" and how it relates to subtraction. We finished off the week learning to problem solve a multi-step problem and students took their unit test.
Writing: In writing, we have been busy working on our revising and editing skills. Students learned how to self edit and peer edit. Some students have started publishing their personal narrative to get ready for our writing celebration next week.
Science: We have started a new unit in Science and this week students explored our focus question: What are pollinators and why are they important? We will continue to do more activities related to answering this question to gain a better understanding of this concept.
