This week students had a special guest reader Ms. Keller, the 5th grade teacher. She came into our classroom to read Martin's Big Words. This book served as a springboard for students to think about their future goals and dreams, which is a writing piece they are currently working on.
In math, students learned about equal shares. We began the week completing a class sort in which students had a shape that was divided into parts and they needed to decide whether or not the parts were divided into equal parts or unequal parts. Then for the rest of the week students continued to practice this concept along with subtraction by participating through various math centers.
