Photos From Our Week

We began a survey project this week.  Kids brainstormed possible survey topics and questions, conferenced in small groups to refine their question for survey, wrote a rough draft survey online, and conferenced kid-to-kid to revise their survey.  Look for surveys to be published by the middle of the week on our blog.  After that kids will analyze their results and publish their findings in our classroom zine.

During math we are shifting from a focus on multi-digit division to fractions.  We will spend the next couple of weeks adding, subtracting, and understanding equivalences between fraction while revisiting long division from time to time in class.

Our current read aloud is The Watsons Go To Birmingham--1963.  We aren't to sure about Byron's life choices at the moment.
