This Week in 4D:
Math: This week students persevered in solving complex problems as they attempted several Math challenges. They also began the classroom routine of Number Talks. Please see their Seesaw for an explanation on this.
Literacy: Students wrote friendly letters to their Peace Crane partners in South Africa. Peace crane letters is an initiative where students from all around the world write to each other. It is a way to promote understanding and open mindedness.
UOI: The students looked at our yearlong unit How we express ourselves. The central idea is: How we express our understanding influences how effectively our messages are communicated. We will be working throughout the year to help students learn how to create high quality presentations through a variety of media.
Website of the week: https://www.mangahigh.com/en/
Mangaghigh will be used to practice Math concepts that students have been taught. Students have logged in at school and practiced it a bit this week. It will not be used every week at school but occasionally I will assign tasks on Mangahigh. Some of the tasks are answering a set of questions and other tasks are more game like. I will not assign homework on Mangahigh but it could be a site you let child use at home if you wish.
Game of the Week: Close to 100
Game Purpose: To improve addition and subtraction fluency to 100. The game can be adjusted to play to 1,000 if the student is fluent to 100 already.
- Digit cards or deck of cards with face cards taken out
- Piece of paper for the recording score
