This week we traveled to Tiananmen square--the world’s largest square to do some kite flying! We walked parts of the Great Wall of China and students tried to make their own but they ran out of time before they made it to 13,00 miles. They did make it all the way across the classroom! We also took a trip down the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers. Students made their own sampan and junk boats to sail down the rivers!
I love how engaged students are in math! On Wednesday, they worked to create shapes on geoboards, explored true and false number statements, and practiced their doubles facts.
Students have been working hard finishing up their book reviews. They practiced reading their reviews in order to convince their audience. Students practiced on each other before they share their reviews with others.
