Reading: This week we started literacy center rotations. Students practiced working independantly and collaboratively while rotating to four different centers. We had the Independant Reading, Partner Reading, Word Work and Listening Center. Students practiced transitioning from one to the other efficiently.
Math: This week in math we started our new Unit 2. This unit is all about addition and subtraction fact fluency. Students practiced reading and writing addition number stories. Students were also introduced to Xtra Math, the program that will help determine their mastery of basic addition and subtraction facts.
Writing: In writing students were introduced to strategies to help them stretch out their personal narratives and add more details.
Social Studies OStudents were introduced to our classroom town project. We started by deciding where our settlers will explore to create our town. We ended the week with our focus question, "What are landforms and what effect do they have on human societies?"
