Stuff in Motion – Finishing up our Medieval Village:
This week we will put the final touches on our Medieval Village, testing water wheels, choosing a final water wheel design and photographing our creation
Math Games and Review:
We spend the week playing mostly old math games, with occasional new ones. We will focus on reviewing double and triple digit addition, multiplication with 2’s, 3’s, 4’s and 5’s as well as measurement.
Good readers turn on their brains while they are reading, connecting their prior knowledge with the text and then making predictions.
Last week in Writer’s Workshop, we worked used all our senses to create detailed, descriptive stories. This week, we’ll incorporate details into stories about San Francisco.
