We practiced our subtraction strategies as we prepare for this Friday’s quiz on 2 and 3 digit adding and subtraction equations. eg. 25+47= ____ , 103 – 87=____. Please encourage your child to practice at home. We are preparing to move into multiplication next.
Students worked on group projects building the rooms of the factory. We definitely have some young engineers amongst us. We will be photographing and writing about our projects in preparation to share with parents during Student Led Conferences in March. We began watching the original 1971 release of the movie “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”, students compared costumes, sets and character differences between the book, newer 2005 release and the older film.
We also learned about the history of Valentine’s day as we shared our cards and played board games to celebrate.
