In Reading we are on our last chapter of Stone Fox. It has been a great book and we have practiced many reading skills while reading this book! In Writing we started our rough drafts of our realistic fiction story. We are in the editing process and will be working on our final drafts next week! In Math we practiced multiplication and division in our 9s. We learned a trick for making equations with our 9s quick and easy(check out the video below). We even learned a cool song for skip counting in ours 9s(check out the video below). We are almost finished with Government unit and we took a quiz on the 3 branches of government. Next week we are going to put all of our knowledge to the test with fun activity!
