Our Week in Review:
UOI/Literacy: The students have been working on their Heritage research project.They are learning how to take better notes and how to organize their notes according to their sources and guiding questions.
Math: For the Heritage research project the students are working on completing geometric tasks about their Heritage site such as identifying important geometric shapes, angles and lines of symmetry in their site. They also learned about ratio in order to draw their site to scale.
During Math sessions they have learned how music can teach us about fractions.They wrote songs in 4/4 time and recorded the fractions within the songs. They then learned to convert these fractions into decimals. Once they did that then they could code their songs into Scratch. Ask your child to play you their song sometime. They are pretty impressive.
