Here's what we were working on in the classroom last week :
Reading : The students applied their knowledge of making inferences to books this week. The students did a phenomenal job inferring characters' feelings and providing evidence from the text and their personal experience to justify their inferences.
Writing : The students continued to write their nonfiction animal books last week. They wrote their habitat sections (and included maps to show where in the world their animals live) and their food sections (and included photographs to support their writing that they found on google).
Math : We started unit 8 last week, which has a focus on geometry. The students learned about polygons - shapes that have straight sides, lines that don't cross, and are closed.
Here are some pictures from last week :
