Tuesday May 22nd - Friday May 25th

I hope everyone enjoyed their super long weekend!! Here is a look at what is happening next week in our classroom. 

Math - We will finish up our Probability Unit tomorrow, and have a short quiz on Wednesday. I will go over with students what they need to know for the quiz. Our next unit of study will be on Algebra. Students have already worked on math questions, during some of our daily math warm-ups, that have included algebra. I will be showing students this short video on Probability and Tree Diagrams on Tuesday.

Language - We are working on our Media Projects this week using iMovie on the Ipads. This project fits in with our Book Clubs that we have recently finished. We are also continuing to read "Wonder" and reflecting throughout the book on the various perspectives the story is being told.
