Students received a copy of a map of the colonies and were told about an upcoming test. On next Wednesday, 1/17, students will be given a blank map and have to label each of the 13 colonies correctly without using anything other than the head on their shoulders. They will have a full week to study for this, and it will count as a primary grade in Social Studies.
As for math, we are working on input/output tables and the patterns that are used to figure them out. We have also learned how to write equations to help solve those tables. We will be completing another Exemplar type problem tomorrow (Thursday) which will challenge (and possibly frustrate) some of the kids. They are going to have to really think to figure out this pattern! I am planning to finish up the week with a math test on patterns.
Tomorrow we will be voting on our Leader of the Month and a (pretty empty) Thursday folder will be coming home.
