Hello all and Happy April to you!

Our BOOK MADNESS Championship Face-off is between...


What will the winner be?!!?

LEARNING TARGET: I CAN identify the big ideas and summarize a text.
READING- Students are continuing to work on the skill of summarizing a text.  We completed our Benchmark Lesson and then pulled small groups.  While I was with groups, students were completing a summary on a reading from their Benchmark story as well as their summarizing/ main idea packets from last week and summaries of small group texts.  We also practiced with the skill of comparing and contrasting two animals using a Venn diagram and then using those points from the diagram to construct a summary.
This is our big idea organizer from class (create this for homework)

HOMEWORK: complete big idea/ summary organizer over one book from the final 4 on YOUR Book Madness bracket

LEARNING TARGET: I CAN borrow within subtraction of fractions.
Math 1 continued the practice of borrowing in subtraction of fractions and completed a chapter review.  Math 2 had a test over subtracting fractions.

HOMEWORK: complete fraction practice/ word problems practice pages.
