MATH - The students have worked with resilience during this unit on division!! Having a successful method for division, checking division with rounding and estimating, interpreting remainders and completing multi-step problems are the objectives that will be assessed this Friday. We still are working in class to finish the practice pages that align with these objectives. Within the next couple of days, we will do so, along with a review and a small quick quiz. As the year continues, we will work to develop levels of security if not attained at this time. Progressing in these skills, is perfectly normal and expected to some degree. Thank you for your support and practice at home.

A Method's Comparison
Can you solve the problem one way? Two ways? Three ways?

#### OBSERVE! QUESTION! INVESTIGATE! ANALYZE! DISCOVER!

SCIENCE - A science experiment involving inquiry, predictions and observations is featured below. It was with a little bit of video clips and prior knowledge, that students were able to explain the results of the experiment. HOT air expands. COLD air condenses.

A bubble appeared coming out of the bottle when immersed in hot water, the bubble went inside with the bottle was immersed in cold.
The students new pictures, using labels and perhaps colors with significance, to help explain what they saw and what they thought caused these to occur. They viewed each others' work and left notes and questions about what caught their interest.

SOCIAL STUDIES - Last week, we reviewed or Five Themes of GEOGRAPHY. The students worked in groups to record what recall they had on their selected 'topic'/term. After recapping with a video, the students revisited their first brainstorm to add, change, revise or omit anything from their boards. A group share-out allowed for ALL terms to be reviewed in one lesson. Today we began our HUMAN GEOGRAPHY unit on MOVEMENT. We are reading a book title, Dandelions, which explores the Westward Movement. We have discussed the meaning of PUSHES and PULLS and will continue to list these as we continued to learn about the various Movement groups.

Five Themes Cooperative Activity

CAFE CENTERS - Centers continue to provide opportunities to practice writing, reading fluency and reading comprehension!!

• Tiger Rising has allowed for us to follow our characters' words, actions and feelings carefully in order to gain a better understanding of them.
• Our GOOGLE account will allow us to publish a narrative in class this week.
• Reading groups will continue very shortly. All students are being administered their mid-year fluency assessments. Look for these results along with Star Math progress on the mid-marking report. This report will be sent home on February 2.
The idea of NINJA centers around the students being 'warriors'. Warriors are brave as well as tough, in effort and mind as well as soft at heart!!

Have a wonderful week!!
