This week we read a story called, My Brother Martin. This story is a biography written by Martin Luther King Jr.’s sister. We are focusing on what it takes to be a great leader. We also studied poems by Langston Hughes. We wrote a PCR (pros constructed response) and the students scored themselves based on their response using text evidence.
We continue to practice long division. We will have a unit test on division next Friday before the break. Here’s a video that explains the digit-by-digit method we have been using. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGqBQrUYua4
The class made crystals by completing an evaporation test. The class found out that the mock rocks had kosher salt in them.
