Lesson/Week 21

We started our day with a Team Science Jeopardy Challenge; Chandler & John tied Caleb & Landon.  Vicente was our host and we've determined this is our favorite format for reviewing material.  Next Challenge will focus on Language Arts.

We continued our study of fractions, explaining how fractions not only communicate parts of a whole but also number of successful attempts out of total attempts.  We tackled various activities notating the fraction for each.  Ms. Kelli surprised the group by sinking 2/3 baskets!  Then we calculated total successes/total attempts ... which led to a lesson on SIMPLIFYING Fractions and Equivalent Fractions!   

Add a spelling test; reading 'A Land Remembered' out loud and several other activities and our day passed quickly!   See you next week!
