Student should be bringing home their spelling journals and reading logs every night. It is my expectation that students read at least 15 minutes every night and practice their spelling. We will start using Accelerated Reader with the expectation that students will get through one book every 2 to 3 weeks.
Heritage- Who You Are
Students have continued to learn how we share our heritage as we read in our Lead21 books. The students learned how we share our heritage through art. We read how Faith Ringgold created are through drawing on canvas and turning her canvas into a quilt. Click on this link and this link to hear Faith Ringgold talk about how she put together her quilt to create a piece of art. The students also learned how the Navajo Indian tribe used sand paintings in healing ceremonies. The following link will take you to a video showing a sand painting ritual. The students will have an opportunity on Friday to start the inquiry process for discovering important pieces to their family's heritage.
We are rocking and rolling in math! Students have mastered front end rounding and have started to transition to rounding within a number. We will continue working on rounding tomorrow with a wrap up of place-value Friday in order to move on to addition and subtraction next week. I will show the students and parents how to access the Go Math student website tomorrow and Friday so that students can get extra practice at home.
Students are reviewing/learning how to use a compass and key on a map. We went over the cardinal and intermediate directions yesterday by using these tools to identify directionality on a map. The students also discussed the importance of understanding the key and how we can use a key to better understand regions displayed on a map. The assignment notebook code is for the students to identify the 4 intermediate directions. They should say north east, north west, south east, and south west. I hope you all have a great night and I look forward to another great day of learning!
