Happy Spring!

Happy Spring to everyone! 
It has been a long, frigid winter. 
The students have been working hard at comparing fractions and demonstrating understanding of the different strategies of expressing the multiplication facts.
They are sharing great discussions in our new Reading Unit: Cultures.
We are also currently working very hard at character building (how to treat one another), and women's history.
We are also learning to interview one another in order to write biographies about our classmates.
Energy and matter is the current science kit. They will be working with batteries and discussing the different energy sources.

We have also piloted the PARCC assessment in our computer lab on laptops. Prior to their trial run, I showed the students sample questions and walked them through on how to maneuver the laptop touch pad as I projected it on the screen for them to see every step I took.  We also discussed different strategies to answer the questions.  Next week, our classroom, will take the "real" PARCC test.  Please do not feel worried about this test because, at this point, we are just piloting the test so that we can give feedback about our experience to the district.

Let's enjoy these beautiful spring days!

The students have been working hard on many projects in class. They are demonstrating understanding of different ways to solve the same problem, in "Choose 3 Ways".  They are demonstrating understanding of all the components of PRONOUNS.  They are demonstrating understanding of FACT and OPINION and CAUSE and EFFECT by writing their own sentences.  The students also made foldables about equivalent fractions, we are still working on improving understanding of EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS.
Let's keep up the great work 205!!!
