Math- This week, we continued with our Rocket Math testing. The students are making great progress in progressing up their rocket. I hope that they are applying this knowledge of facts in their use of multiplication in daily assignments. Once 80% of our students have mastered a level of Rocket Math, we add a flame to our rocket located outside our classroom. Please be sure to check our progress when you stop by!
Reading- This week, we focused on reading non-fiction. Our class was lucky to receive a donation of several hundred dollars in magazines for our classroom. This donation was made by a couple in Joplin using Donors Choose. They paid for our class to have Weekly Reader Magazine and Time for Kids Magazine. These magazines will be used throughout the year to discuss current events and read non-fiction.
Science- The students began their study of Land & Water.
Social Studies- We have wrapped up our Native American WebQuest, the graduated books look great. I hope that the students have gained much knowledge of various Native American tribes.
