It’s been another great week in 4/5 multiage.  We had a fun time exchanging valentines and enjoyed our second Friday of skiing.  Thanks for getting your child to school on time and geared up!

English

We started expository essay writing about our favorite things to teach people and had fun playing with words to make them engaging and school appropriate.  Students should keep up their hard work studying for and turning in their Spelling.  Remember, the list is always on the blog under “English Spelling”.  It’s updated every Wednesday when your child receives their new list.

Math

Partial quotients division continues to challenge the fourth grade while 5th graders explore data sorting and analysis.

PYP

We were finalizing the business plans and their board games and they have finalized their reflections on what they learned in the business unit. Next week will begin the new unit in which children will begin a journey to discover the contributions of past civilizations to humanity.

Spanish

In Spanish they were learning about the structure of a paragraph and working individually on writing their fiction and nonfiction stories. Next week, we will be working on the use of dictionaries.
