Ramadan Kareem!

We hope everyone has enjoyed the first few days of Ramadan and is looking forward to the weekend ahead. At school, we have been loving our schedule as it has long, uninterrupted blocks of time for teaching & learning!

Math:

We will wrap up our measurement unit with measurement number stories. Next, we will move forward with multiplication and division strategies, and equivalent fractions. Students need a “brush up” on their addition and subtraction with and without regroup.

What are different ways to show the same fraction?

How are multiplication & division related?

What are clue words to look for when solving multi-step number stories?

What is fake news?

Unit of Inquiry

We will be wrapping up our culture unit and moving into an animal life cycles unit. Students will be inquiring into life cycles using mealworms for this inquiry.

For this experiment, we will need some unique materials. If you have any extras at home, feel free to send them to school:

Empty Plastic Bottles

Styrofoam

Oatmeal

Dirt

Any plant bearing seed

Uncooked beans

What is a life cycle?

What are different animal groups & are their life cycles different?

How are plants and animals dependent on one another?
