Learners have been working on identifying main idea and supporting details as they are reading. Ms. Hays taught the class how the main idea is different from the topic of a story. Learners created tree maps to represent the topic, main idea, and supporting details they read about.
In math, learners have been working on several strategies to add and subtract numbers. This week, we started adding and subtracting numbers with regrouping!!
As we are coming to the end of our inquiry unit, Who We Are, learners have been working hard to create their utopian community. Each department was responsible for identifying features that would help our community run smoothly. Each group also had to think creatively about what would make our community more sustainable and unique. Our city planning committee met to lay out where each feature would go. Then, each group had to construct their ideas out of all of the materials they had brought to class. Learners had to collaborate and work together as a class! Check out each step of the constructing process!
We had a guidance lesson this week! Learners talked about making good choices and what to do when we face big and little problems. We also LOVED pajama day!!
