Our learning goal this week was to retell the plot of a story in writing. We discussed how the introduction to our retelling should include the characters and setting, the middle of the retelling should include the main events/problem, and the ending should include the solution. We used several books to do independent retellings of the plot.
We continued working on our persuasive opinion letters. Students reviewed the parts of a letter and how to add examples to their reasons. We went through the writing process to draft, edit, and some students published their letters (final copy). We discussed how to address an envelope.
We continued learning about diphthongs this week, focusing on the sound that is made from "oi" and "oy." Students sorted and spelled words by the pattern they contain (coin vs. loyal). We played an /oi/ board game and used whiteboards to spell and represent words with a picture. The class took the assessment on Thursday.
Small groups collaborated to make cubes out of gum drops and toothpicks. We learned how to partition (put into parts) rectangles and circles. Students focused on representing halves, thirds, and fourths. The geometry assessment was Thursday. Friday we began discussing standard units of measurement like inches using gummy worms.
We started learning about fossils. We learned how a fossil is formed and glued the steps in order. We did a "cookie dig" to excavate for chocolate chips (our fossils). We talked about paleontologists and did a dinosaur dig for pretend dinosaur bones. Groups had to collaborate to put the pieces tougher to form the dinosaur's body.
