This week we worked on finding the meaning of vocabulary words within the context of a text. We read Book the First from Tale of Despereaux. It is very rich in vocabulary and allows the student to really think about the meaning of the word. We also took a comprehension test over the first part.
This week we finished Unit 4. We started our study guide today (Friday) and we will test on Tuesday. This unit showed many different strategies for multiplication. I have told them they have the ability to choose the strategy that best helps them find the correct answer.
This week the students continued to focus on the Midwest. The students took their first geography test and did great!
Thank you all for coming to their performances! I enjoyed watching all they had learned in music class, and they loved having you all come as well!
