In math, learners have been working on addition and subtraction using multiple strategies. One of their new favorite games to play is "Close to 100". Learners have to decide how to arrange digits in order to get a sum that is as close to 100 as possible. We have also started using number lines to help us determine sums and differences.
In our inquiry unit, Who We Are, learners have been working hard to create a utopian community. In our community we have a housing department, transportation department, economic development department, as well as a government services department. Each learner is working with their specific department to help incorporate structures of their community and coming up with creative ways to design a community that is a true utopia. Learners are having to utilize good communication and learning that communities change as a result of individual and group decisions.
Today learners set up their Google classroom! Mrs. Sims helped our class get set up and complete their first assignment. We are also continuing our weekly Spanish lessons. Learners are working on vocabulary as well as how to answer a variety of questions.
