This week the mathematicians took what they learned about graphs and were able to apply it to our Engineering unit. They surveyed their classmates on their favorite type of paper, graphed the results and then analyzed their results. Mathematicians did a great job of looking at the data and coming up with “facts” the could learn from their data. They can’t wait to share with you their hard work at Showcase!

Opinion Writing

This week in Writer’s Workshop we kicked off a new unit of writing: Opinion Writing. We dove into the world of facts vs. opinions. We now know that opinions are something we feel and are very personal to us. We also know that not everyone shares the same opinion as us and that’s okay. We posed questions to the writers and they had to pick a side and then they worked in groups to list reasons why their opinion was The writers worked on stating their opinion and giving 2 reasons to back up the opinion.
