Hi, I am Harrison. I’m the blog reporter for Mrs. McDonald’s class. This is what we are doing in class,
Language arts: our mentor sentence is a compound sentence which means two sentences put into one joined with and, or, but. According to Alexa, “I think that compound sentences are fun sentences to write because your stories could have more descriptions.” We reviewed homophones in Unit 31 for spelling.
Math: We talked about equivalent fractions. We worked on fractions in a group session on the computers. We also wrote fraction word problems with a flower art project. Brady stated, “We are working on fractions and equivalent fractions are cool because it is a fraction that equals another.”
Social Studies: When asked about social studies, Will, “We are learning about economics. We had 2 tests one on human, capital, and natural resources and another one on scarcity and opportunity costs.” Ask us how we did.
Writing: We are on our final draft. Nora stated, ” I like researching about people and learning new things or facts.”
