Writing: I have continued to be impressed each day in writer’s workshop by the hard work that everyone is putting into their All About Books. The goal this week was to finish all of the writing, including an introduction as well as an about the author section. We are ready to publish after the break!
Math: In math we continued solidifying three digit subtraction skills. We took an assessment on Thursday. Any children who do not have three digit addition and subtraction skills completely solid at this point will continue to review and I will reassess again in May.
Fundations: We worked on using ee, ea, and ey in multisyllabic words.
We had several special events this week. We finished up our cyberbullying workshop in the tech center. We also had a fantastic presentation from three students at the Framingham Learning Center for the Deaf. All of the students were about 10 years old and shared their experiences and answered student questions about deafness. We ended the week with our Earth Week presentation by the NE Aquarium. This program focused on whales. Here are some photos from the presentation:
