As we head into Thanksgiving it is worth highlighting the terrific work students have done with our study of multiplication and division. We have been building understanding of arrays, areas models and place value disks so that students are fluent with their use of the standard algorithm.
We continue to invite our Masterpiece Art Docents in for Art, use the Open Up the Textbook strategy for our study of Nevada history, and focus on math tasks during Extended Day. We finished our second investigation of rocks and minerals in science–thanks to A LOT of parent help during “Special Person Day” and Room D4 got to appear on News Channel 4 as part of their investigation into the Nevada Academic Content Standards.
