We have been busy in the classroom and around school as we wrap up these last weeks of the school year.
In math we have been working really hard on repeated addition and arrays to represent multiplication. The students have been catching on pretty quickly, but are still in the practicing stage (even though some may have the multiplication tables memorized). We have also been practicing breaking numbers apart up to 1000.
In English we are working on consolidating the strategies we have learned throughout the year and are using them when reading. We have also been working on our fluency through reader’s theatre. They have all been coming up with pretty interesting ideas when working with alliteration, rhythm and rhyming.
We have been exploring perspective and how people have different perspectives due to the experiences they have had. The students have been doing a great job looking at things from a variety of perspectives and showing their own perspective.
It’s been great having everyone back in the classroom and we’re looking at a strong finish to the end of the year.
