In Writing we continued working on Personal Opinion Essays. We looked at some stories and analyzed their big ideas and evidence from our own lives. We then thought of big ideas we could write about. We backed up these big ideas with evidence from our lives to make the essay more interesting.
In Math we started on Unit on Fractions. We learned what a fraction is and how to represent this using fraction bars. We also learned how to plot fractions on a number line. We will continue learning about this next week.
