Today we reviewed the four roots for the vocabulary this week, found their definitions and associated them with some of the words. In reading students worked in their small reading groups. Please make sure that your child is doing their reading each night to be prepared for their group discussion. Yesterday several students did not complete their reading and were not able to fully participate in their group discussions.
In math we discussed different types of fractions and worked on strategies for finding equivalent fractions. We also did some review on addition with fractions. Follow the link to a site with a virtual manipulative that visually shows equivalent fractions in squares and circles with their corresponding values on a number line.
