Building a Learning Environment

Our focus in 4C this week was setting up an environment that is effective for learning.

Math:

In Math we participated in Stanford’s Week of Inspirational Math during which the students completed number challenges which reinforced the Eight Mathematical Practices 8-math-practices-sm

Literacy:

In Literacy we set the stage for our reading program. We identified the types of thinking  good readers do as we read and  wrote reading response letters in which students described their thinking.

In writing we are getting ready to write memoirs. This week we drew maps of our neighborhood and identified what stories we would be able to tell from our own life.

UOI:

In UOI we are focusing on the Central Idea: “Identity is Expressed in many ways”  Students are working to describe their own identity in various ways.
