During the first trimester we have begun our Columbia River Gorge study by learning about salmon. We have now moved into learning about trees. During our writing times — we have focused on narrative writing. Our biggest theme for the trimester was writing small moments. We have also spent time working on: placing in ending punctuation, stretching out words and editing writing pieces. The emerging writers in the classroom have been working on handwriting, and legibly copying sentences.
My math students have worked through units on patterning and story problems. They are now in a unit focusing on addition and subtraction.
