This week was all about division! Division with remainders. division with dividends that are multiples of 10, 100 and 1,000, division with estimation, and long division with theBig 7 (click to find out what this method is).
Next week we will continue to practice these skills and MAYBE introduce the standard algorithm (aka the way you probably learned to do long division) if the kids are still up to learning something new.
We started our unit on weather last week, so this week the students got to explore local weather and learned how to use weather instruments and read weather reports.
Next Tuesday we will take a quiz on what we have learned about air, Earth's atmosphere and weather.
Also next week:
Monday: Polar Express Day: a day filled with academic activities focused on our favorite holiday book
Wednesday: Winter Party, Planetarium Visit, and Guidance Lesson
