This week in 4D…

  • we started the week with a visit to the Book Fair
  • we worked on addition with regrouping
  • we reviewed what Place Value means and learned about the different ways we can represent numbers
  • students completed their last rotation of our literacy centres
  • we investigated some key vocabulary to our UOI such as migrant, refugee, asylum seeker, expatriate to try to understand the difference between each
  • students thoughtfully chose 3 goals that they would like to work towards this year
  • we have been using Xtra Math to practice speed and accuracy of basic facts
  • students participated in a ‘Migration Mix-Up’ afternoon where they had 6 optional sessions to attend, all related to our UOI
  • students completed their Math and Reading MAP tests

Next week…

  • students will continue with basic facts practice (addition/subtraction) and we will focus on strategies we can use to help us calculate questions in our heads quicker
