Students have started a new novel this week Maniac Magee. Students identified the main characters, their feelings and summarized Part 1 of the novel. Next, week students will begin reading and researching Westward expansion. It will be an exciting new unit!
Students have been enjoying our unit on Geometry. Students have identified different types of triangles, classified quadrilaterals, measured angles with protractors and made tessellations with pattern blocks. Today, we created tessellations, polygon pictures and quadrilateral diagrams.
