HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK 💡
Last week in math we continued moving through Chapter 3. Students examined fractions and mixed numbers as division expressions, and practiced converting fractions and mixed numbers into decimals. Additionally, students learned how to add mixed numbers.
Our small groups are up and running and we were able to devote our time continuing to focus on growing our fiction comprehension skills. Our whole class mini-lessons focused on finding evidence for themes and making inferences.
Our Personal Narrative writing unit began last week! Throughout the week, students explored the characteristics of personal narratives and identified writing ideas based on special objects and interesting events.
Last week in social studies, students examined our next chapter: Slavery in the Americas. As a class, we explored what life was like in South Africa and the European Slave Trade. We also examined triangular trade, surviving the Middle Passage, slavery in the colonies, and what life was like for an enslaved person.
