Students have been developing their thinking skills (one of the approaches to learning) how to acquire, comprehend and synthesize knowledge. They have been practicing these through learning about the six simple machines and how they make work easier. The students completed their research, made posters and then the rest of the class used their (the expert group’s) research to deepen their own understandings.
In writing sessions , our young authors are drafting, revising, editing and publishing their realistic fiction stories, which they look forward to sharing with their classmates and buddies.
In Math students have been working on the jump and split strategy for subtraction and solving a variety of single step word problems for both subtraction and addition problems.
