Last week we were able to have an egg hunt to celebrate Easter where everyone worked together to help those who had trouble finding eggs.
In Math we have started finishing up our unit on fractions by doing different games to help the students simplify fractions, find equivalent fractions, compare fractions, and many more. They used snap cubes to make fractions, fraction dominoes to find equivalent fractions, and fraction card games to compare fractions.
For Science the students have been learning about weather and climate in relation to the world map. They created a colored map to show the different climate patterns throughout the world. Each student did one page then we matched them up to see the climate patterns around the world.
In ELA the students finally published their Informational Books about a chosen topic. They did such an amazing job with editing and all their chapters with pictures. They spent so much time and effort making their books so we had a publishing party where everyone got the chance to read each other’s work. We have now started the unit on poetry and students were able to write a stanza together then add all the stanzas to create a poem.
For Social Studies the students have been learning about Ancient Mesopotamia. They have learned about their culture and the different empires that ruled throughout the history of Ancient Mesopotamia. They love to play the A and B review game to help them remember all the topics we have learned about Mesopotamia. They have been practicing writing notes about the different empires.
