Currently in Language Arts we are really working hard on expanding our vocabulary. During our 100 Book Challenge time the students are finding words that they don't understand and using context clues to come up with a possible definition to those words. When I meet with the students individually we discuss those words so that they become a part of their growing vocabulary.
The students continue to love Prodigy both at school and at home! Recently everyone completed an assignment on Prodigy to show off their new division skills. The "big idea" of the current Math unit is that the students learn the relationship between multiplication and division. Our classroom goal is to have this skill mastered before Winter Break so that when we return in January we'll begin our big unit on Fractions!
