Here's a photo of our "We Are Authors" board. This week, we completed an activity called "Books Make Me Happy", where students chose a particular book and explained why it made them happy. This helps us to see how we are all different, and have different interests. It also helps me to select texts for the class.
We have finished our new learning about patterns and will be having an assessment on Friday, October 16. We have learned how to recognize how patterns are changing. We can extend them. We can find missing terms. We can predict what will happen later in a pattern. We can describe patterns that increase, decrease and repeat. We have practiced using math language together. You will notice that we have done lots of different types of practice activities, and that some of them might not be finished. We are bringing our math bag home for the weekend (and next week, if we need it), so that we can finish our practice activities. We will be taking up problems as a group on Tuesday.
If more practice is needed, please go to the math page and click on Nelson Math. Try activities in chapter 1. This is what our math board looks like right now.
