Literacy: Readers started to create accordion books that tell about what happened in, My Father's Dragon. Students are practicing finding the main idea of a chapter and summarizing important events. Way to go!
Math: Mathematicians began a new unit this week focusing on multiplication and division. We have been looking at the relationship between repeated addition and multiplication to enhance our understanding. For example: 3x5 = 5+5+5.
Social Studies: We love learning about the Hopi. Students researched the types of things that Hopi make to use in their daily lives. Ask your child to tell you about some of the similarities and differences between how the Hopi get what they need to live and how we do the same.
Special Speaker: Paul Fanning from the Saint Boniface organization came on Friday to talk to us about children in Haiti. He showed us a slideshow of what our sister school, The Capan School looks like and how things are progressing. We are excited to continue supporting kids in Haiti and to help them get a powerful learning experience.
Enjoy your week!
