We had a fantastic week at school. Students learned all about bridges and even got to break their own pasta bridges. If you scroll down you can see some pictures of the bridges that students built and then broke.
Students also performed their speeches. They did a wonderful job writing and then publicly speaking about the history of a food. Over the next few weeks I'll be posting some of their speeches on the blog.
In math we continue to work with fractions. Students are making so many gains in their understanding of fractions. We are working on putting fractions on number lines and finding fractions that are greater than one. If it has been a while since you have done this . . . here is a video I recommend that you watch about fractions: https://learnzillion.com/lessons/74
Finally, we started to practice how to use the computer interface for the state test. It is part of students homework to practice with the state test online so they are comfortable with the website. Please make sure that you are going online with your child to look at the test and help your child get comfortable with the test. If you are opting out of the test, please let the school know ASAP.
Here is a link to both the tests and the answer keys to the practice tests: http://kid-writers.blogspot.com/p/oaks-math-sample-test.html
Have a wonderful weekend,
