New Week, New Units

We had our reading and writing celebration two weeks ago and assessed the students on the first two topics of our Math Module 7. Last week we started our non-fiction writing unit and non-fiction reading unit. This week for math, we started Topic C which reinforces the measurement concepts and skills that was learned in Module 2 with a focus on customary units. We also started Topic D where students now explore measurement using both customary and metric units. Both our writing and reading units focuses on non-fiction. The students are now learning how to do research by reading non-fiction books during our Readers workshop and then using what they’ve learned to write their own non-fiction book. Our class has come a long way from when we started in September and as always, we are proud of their progress.
