What are we learning about?
Study Skills: Students are learning life skills for success through cooperation, flexibility, respect & responsibility. We are learning to have a Growth Mindset. There is no limit to my learning if I put in the effort, my brain will learn.
Reading: Studnets are working on choosing 'Just Right books" of personal interest. We are also working on our reading stamina. We have a goal of reading uninterrupted for 20 minutes. We are working to use the following reading strategies: schema, make connections, sequencing, summarizing and inferring.
Writing: We have been working hard on personal narratives, or "small moment" stories. With this style of writing we are learning how to tell a story bit by bit. We are learning to use leads and transition words. We are learning to write with a story teller's voice in an effort to bring our characters alive. We are learning to use dialogue and how to end our stories with action, talk or feeling.
Math: In math we have been working on basic addition and subtraction facts and extended facts. We are learning to estimate. We just started Unit 3 which is about measuring in standard units. We use both U.S. Customary and Metric measurement units. Additionally, We are learning the steps to Problem Solving;
