We continue to study fractions during math. We are starting to work with mixed numbers and will soon be working with fractions with unlike denominators.
This week in reading, we practiced working with non-fiction texts. We read about the arctic and Antarctica to complement the fictional Mr. Popper's Penguins that we just finished. Also, we started a Dr. Seuss author study for Read Across America next week. Students picked a Dr. Seuss quote and described how that quote applied to their lives.
Next week we are celebrating Read Across America with a spirit week, these are the various daily activities:
Monday-Exercise your reading ability and wear your workout clothing.
Tuesday-Hats off to Dr. Seuss, wear a hat!
Wednesday-Be a good sport, read and wear your favorite team jersey.
Thursday-Dr. Seuss wrote some crazy, mixed up stories! Mix up your clothes by wearing them inside out!
Friday- Books help you dream of faraway places and days to come. Dream and wear your jammies!
