It was wonderful to see so many of you this week at both the Music Concert and Dress Rehearsal. In case you were unable to make it, I have posted a couple of the songs in the video below. Your children were very impressive.
Reminder: Next Thursday March 22 from 12:30-1:30 is Market Day. Some students will need to purchase materials this weekend. They will be given a loan from school to purchase those materials. If any of the students money is spent they should keep a receipt so that we can reimburse them.
Our Week in Review:
UOI: Students updated their cost sheets, divided tasks, learned about elements of visual design and began preparing their stall and products.
Literacy: Students presented their book reports. They also began working on narrative writing. They are learning to write good descriptive sentences.
Math: Students are working on division and are continuing to solidify their understanding of multiplication. The problems below are the ones that we did not have a chance to get to during the open classroom on Thursday. Below is also James Tanton’s explanation of how exploding dots relate to the traditional Australian algorithm that he was taught.
