Students share their combinations of 10. The goal of this lesson was for students to show as many combinations as they can with pictures and number sentences. Be sure to ask your child to show you how many combinations of ten they can find.

Students attended an assembly today that reminded us how we can support a bully free school. 5th grade students performed real life scenarios that could take place here at school. Students brainstormed ways they could support others when they are bullied.

Each week students shop for just right books to practice their newly learned reading skills. Our rule of thumb is that if they get stuck 0-1 times, the book may be too easy. If they get stuck 2-3 times, that may be just perfect. If they get stuck 4-5 times, students should stop and think if they understand what they are reading because the text may be too hard. These are great guidelines to use when reading books outside of school.

Students work independently to figure out how much food the caterpillar ate on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. They are encouraged to use manipulatives or pictures to help themselves. Next they create a representation of their learning on their paper.
Students then share their work and strategies with a partner. This is their opportunity to appropriately challenge their partner's thinking and compare it to their own.

Students participate in reading groups (reading the same book, and working on comprehension skills), strategy groups (all students reading different books, working on the same type of skill) and reading conferences where students talk about their reading, books they chose and make goals for themselves.

Students are learning how to solve story problems in math. They retell the problem, gather manipulatives to represent the problem, retell the problem using the manipulatives to a partner and then record their thinking on paper using a number sentence/equation.
