The Week of 3/5…

Happy March! I just can’t believe how quickly this year is going!

On Friday, we had so much fun during our “mystery hangout”. We were able to guess that Mrs. Mulhern lives in JAPAN! She woke up at 4:30 am to connect with us! It was such an awesome experience video chatting with someone literally across the world. Technology is such an amazing tool and I am so happy we have the opportunity to utilize it in the classroom on a daily basis! Here are some pictures from our experience! Where will we travel to next??

Here is what is happening in Mrs. O’Donnell’s classroom this week…

In Math… we will continue with Chapter 11 this week. We will learn how to solve problems using logical reasoning, convert measurements of capacity, learn how to display measurement data in fractions of a unit on a line plot and will convert measurements of length within the metric system. We will have a quiz on Wednesday.

In Social Studies… this week Mrs. Purzycki’s class will be learning about the delegates who created the Constitution, the preamble, and the 3 branches of government.

In ELA….this week we will learn how to identify the main idea and supporting details in fiction and non fiction reading passages. We will practice using these genres through station activities.  We will read a new story about Thomas Edison this week (Lesson 19). Our Lesson 18 vocabulary assessment will be on Tuesday and we will be introduced to a new set of words on Wednesday.
