We are continuing groups to help the kids in the areas where they're struggling. We are finishing up the pink dolphin story. Our goal is to read fiction and nonfiction each week. In our groups, the kids are working on fluency, vocabulary, writing, reading and comprehension, and listening comprehension.
We are working on fractions this week. I can see it being difficult, so we will get lots of practice finding equivalent fractions, finding a common denominator, and ordering fractions.
We are reviewing rocks and starting our unit on Utah biomes! We are focusing on deserts, wetlands, and forests. I have divided up the class into 3 teams, who will research and teach the rest of the class about their biome.
