March is Reading Month Guest Reader
In PYP How we Express ourselves: Storytelling we wrapped up this unit looking at the traditions,values and beliefs of different cultures using different stories. We read Knots on a Counting Rope which helped us understand how important storytelling is to our cultures and others cultures. We will finish up the unit this week.
In Math we began learning about Place Value. We talked about thousands columns, hundreds blocks, ten sticks and one blocks. We represented place value in pictures and in written form. We also learned about expanded notation.
In Science we took our test about Structures of Life and will be saying goodbye to our crayfish and beetles this week! It was a fun unit and we will be sad to see them go!
In May students will be taking the M-STEP. It will be taken online using computers to assess the students' ELA and Math levels. I have put a link to a practice test on my website under Websites M-Step Preview Test . Please feel free to practice with this as much as possible at home so students become familiar with the program. To be taken directly to the site click the link below.
