It was great to have most of the students back in school this past week! In English, we are continuing our novel study of the Wizard of Oz. Dorothy has just melted the Wicked Witch and we are on the way back to Oz with her broomstick! We have also been working on how to use similes to improve writing by making it more visual for the reader. This week we will be learning about how to correctly use commas in writing.
In math, we finished a geometry section on polygons. This week we will be learning regrouping strategies for counting large amounts. We also worked on a situational program last week and are practicing the different steps on how to break it down to be more manageable. A new problem of the week is now posted.
Have a great week everyone!
