I hope everyone had a relaxing Spring Break. Hopefully it will feel like Spring soon! We finished The Wizard of Oz and are beginning a new unit on Biographies. One of the skills we will work on is how to summarize. The children will be reading different biographies and working on different biography projects. As a class, we will be reading the biography of Jane Goodall. We will also be working on a personal narrative that we began already. The students will be receiving a rubric this week so that they will better understand the expectations for their story. In math we will be beginning a unit on fractions. We will be concentrating on fractions of a whole and fractions of a set.
We are looking forward to a lot of fun later in the week for Purim!
Have a great week everyone.
