Thank you for your attendance and engagement in the Student Led Conferences. As a parent I really enjoy this special time with my children. It really allows me to see where they are at and how they are improving their learning. It also is a time where we can set goals together. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

We have chosen an area of our universe (land, underwater or space) to explore and some reasons why we will explore. Using the internet and books we are gathering information to share our exploration through a travel brochure. The brochure will include a map, fascinating reasons to go, fascinating facts, things to bring, photographs and other things that we learn.
We have completed for the moment our inquiry into multiplication through repeated addition, arrays, number sentences, symbols and pictures. The students have impressed me with their increased understanding of multiplication and understand a great deal about this area of math which will continually be built on for the rest of this year and in the coming school years. We will use this knowledge in the coming weeks to connect it to fractions and division. Congratulations to all the students!
We have learned the structure of the information report and have written two drafts. One with the class about superheroes and one with a partner about a country or continent of interest. For our country we had to use books to find the information and then write it in our own words rather than just copy. This is a skill we will need to use as we complete our travel brochures. We also continued to develop our individual reading through our weekly reading to ourselves, through Raz kids, word study and focused guided reading with Mr. Daniel.
