These next two weeks in the wonderful land of Oz we are working on continuing to show brains, courage, and a heart. Here is what we will be learning this week.
Math- The third and fourth grade students will practice using a ruler. The third graders will learn their 7’s times tables. They will have a timed quiz on their 0-7’s on Friday and next week. The fourth graders will begin learning 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication. The best way for the students to practice this skill is by talking it through with an adult or older sibling. This helps them practice the steps to the process. Moby Max is required for November 12-18. There is no Moby Max November 19-25.
Science and Social Studies- Last week the students worked on using the STEAM process to build a Wetu that the Wampanoag would be able to use to with stand the weather. This week the students will utilize the STEAM process to build a floating canoe. The students will also continue to learn about Thanksgiving.
