Whew! Short weeks + ERB testing = where’d the week go?!

This week, we started our last class book, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, and started our discussions about it with a “value line” activity in which the kids ranked some ethical dilemmas and how they would react to them. This book will be a good one for more discussions like this!

Also, we began the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Nature Unleashed curriculum to finish out our ecology unit. Students explored outside to find living and nonliving things, and will be categorizing them by type. More outdoor explorations to come!

Here’s what we’ll be up to next week (another short week!):

Math: Reviewing multi-digit multiplication and division and assessing on Thursday

Writing: Getting back to our fictional narratives (they took a back seat to ERB this week)

Reading: Continuing with Mixed-Up Files

Science: Nature Unleashed continues with parts of ecosystems

Word work: There will NOT be a spelling list next week.

Have a wonderful weekend!
