This week we began our novel study of the Wizard of Oz. The students were very excited! We have been learning how to “show, don’t tell” in writing, and we began by writing about the twister scene which we watched with no sound. The students did a fabulous job describing it! It’s wonderful to see them trying to add the different literary techniques and Words of the Week that we have been learning about.
In math, we are working on subtraction with regrouping into the thousand’s place and I am very impressed with how well the students are doing. We will continue this week and work on some application problems as well. I look forward to “meeting” you all at our interviews on the 24th. Have a great week.
