In class this week we started a new Reading unit. We are focusing on reading non-fiction books. We will be focusing on learning more about natural disasters and rocks while reading non-fiction books.This ties into our new Science PYP unit as well. This week we learned how to use a table of contents, index and glossary.
In Writing we finally finished our realistic fiction stories and had some time to write some scary stories. Students really enjoyed writing scary and spooky stories and loved sharing them with their classmates.
In Math we reviewed what is area and how to use multiplication to find the area of a rectangle or square. It can be a bit tricky so we needed some extra practice. We also focused on practicing our multiplication fast facts. We learned to skip count in our 4s. Below are some videos we used! Next week we will be starting our 4s times table!
We started a new PYP unit for Science called Dynamic Earth: How the World Works. We started learning about the different layers of the earth and how the earth is always moving. We cannot wait to learn more!
