For language jobs this week, first grade students worked with prefixes, reviewed adding "s" and "es" to make nouns plural, and matched animals to their homes. Second grade students worked with prefixes, wrote their own sentences containing prepositions, and were introduced to some irregular plural words. Third grade students worked with homographs, adverbs, and irregular plural words.
For math jobs this week, first grade students solved multiplication problems using the golden beads, added fractions, and reviewed telling time. Second grade students worked with multiplication, subtracted fractions, and worked with telling time. Third grade students solved division problems, added fractions containing whole numbers, and worked with elapsed time.
For cultural jobs, students began research on a flag from a country of their choice. Students used the internet and atlases to learn facts about the country and their flag. Students also drew a replica of the flag they had chosen. We can't wait to see the finished products!
