Burrrr...it has been a cold, snowy February! Regardless of our snow days we have been hard at work. The class has been applying various division strategies such as distributive property, are a models, repeated subtraction and partial quotients. Also, we have been reading various poetry, prose, and dramas. I didn't know we had so many actors and actresses in our class. We've just begun exploring myths. The students are identifying the characteristics and themes of each genre. Additionally, the students have begun their electricity unit and are looking forward to creating series and parallel circuits. Finally, the students are working on presenting their research about Connecticut. I hope to post their presentations soon. I am so proud of their handwork this past month.
