2nd/3rd: Week of Apr 8

Math – Ms. Andrea’s math group inspected quarters this week! We found the tails side to be very interesting – we found ones that honor states, a national park, and other interesting places. The Betas are getting pretty great at counting mixed coins. We also discussed spending and wants vs needs. We split into groups and solved several scenarios involving budgets, needs and wants. The Betas did a great job of cooperating, listening to each other and sharing the group responsibilities. Ms. Kelly’s math group kept plugging away at finding area and perimeter for those pesky rectilinear shapes with missing […]

General News Reading/Writing Update We started the week off on Tuesday using our P&P to fuel discussion about our class novel! We then read one more article about the CROWN act and black hair discrimination in Texas before launching into writing some quick opinion pieces on the topic. This round of opinion writing was quicker because Ms. Ansley did the research (ā la pulling and sharing articles on the topic) and Gammas jumped into drafting on laptops right away. We tried to get these done in just three days and made pretty good progress! On Thursday we did a sorting

4th/5th: Week of Apr 1

General News Reading/Writing Update On Monday we started the week off reviewing our at-home study guides and going over the new vocabulary and questions for this week. We then read chapter 5 all together and answered some response questions and had a lively class discussion. On Tuesday we learned all about present-day Nigeria so that we can better compare and contrast the fantasy Nigeria from the book and modern day Nigeria. We learned about Nigeria’s economy, government, and farming and agriculture. We also got to use Google Earth to walk around Lagos (where Onyeka is headed in the book). On
