In math class this week we have continued with multiplying decimals. Here are some strategies we have been using. Standard algorithm, math models, and we also got to work with partial quotients. We have also been doing dream box , which is a web based math program that also helps us with our math skills.

In reading class we've been reading the Chronicles of Narnia The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. We've recently watched the movie on Thursday. I think everyone liked it, I know I did! On Wednesday we took a test on the book. Today (Friday) we compared and contrasted the movie from the book. On Lexia Reading Core 5 some students have completed levels and some who have completed the whole game. There are 18 levels on Lexia and people have completed them all! We worked hard this week and EVERYONE met their Lexia usage goal!!. Here are some pictures of the movie and Lexia /reading plus.

In social studies class we have been working on the 13 colonies. We are doing a brochure on the one we chose that are due on 11/25/14!! Make sure you are working on this and not waiting until the last minute. Mrs. Snyder will send home another criteria handout on Monday for you to use on the project in case you lost yours. I chose to do mine on South Carolina!! On the project, we are graded on climate, geography, history, and more. We have also been learning about the Triangular Trade Route. the Triangular Trade Route is a trade route between New England, Europe, and Africa. Did you know that??
