Mrs. Pfeiffer's fabulous news! January 13, 2017

Reading

This week we read, Colonial Voices, and read the viewpoints of several different people during that era. We read opinions of Loyalists, Patriots, Native Americans, and slaves leading up to the Boston Tea Party. The students were partnered up to prepare a presentation about their person. We compared and contrasted, and discussed why each person may have felt the way they did. Also Queen Longtin visited our room to impose taxes (taking smarties away) on the students to show them how the colonists may have felt. This led to a great discussion afterwards.

Math

This week we started Unit 5. We learned how to decompose fractions into many parts. This will help students change fractions from improper fractions to mixed numbers. We also started adding fractions and mixed numbers. We also started reading story problems that included fractions.

Social Studies

This week the students took their Northeast geography test. The students also began learning more about the resources in the Northeast and why it was where many people landed when they traveled over from England. We also looked at Massachusetts, specifically Boston and why the Boston Tea Party was held there.
