This week's Language Arts focused on understanding genres in books. Reading is one of the biggest contributors to success and I love to support great readers. Knowing how to choose 'just right' books, as well as reading from a variety of genres are steps towards creating individuals who love to read.
Divisibility has been the focus in Math. Students have learned the divisibility rules for 2,5,10, 3 and 9. Some are beginning to see how easy it is to check on whether items can be divided up equally through the use of the rules.
Finally, I was able to introduce our Science unit on Chemistry. Our first learning intention, or goal, is to be able to describe matter. Students used their senses to describe a variety of items qualitatively. Next week we will continue with looking more closely at quantitative measures such as hardness, and elasticity.
Enjoy your long weekend.
