I am so very proud of all of the fourth grade students! Every student rocked their SRI today and showed me that we have a great class of readers! The SRI is an adaptive assessment designed to determine how well students read literature and expository texts. I was able to celebrate with each student as I could tell they did their best. I look forward to seeing how much each student will grow in their reading skills throughout this school year.
The students started their first lesson in the Go Math! curriculum. The students will spend the next week and a half learning about place-value and understanding how to represent numbers. Today, the students looked at the place and the value of each digit in a number. Furthermore, they started to notice the pattern between sequential places. The pattern students noticed today was the hundreds are ten times more than the tens and the thousands are ten times more than the hundreds. We will continue to explore these patterns tomorrow and continue to review what we have already learned about our base ten system.
MT History-Daily Code
Our MT history topic today was the location of Montana in the North American continent. Students looked at Montana and where is was located in comparison to the other countries in North America. The code for today is for the students to identify one bordering country of the United States. I hope you all have a great night and I look forward to another great day of learning!
