In Math, students are actively partitioning different models of wholes into equal parts (e.g., concrete models, fraction strips, and drawn pictorial area models on paper). They identify and count equal parts as 1 half, 1 fourth, 1 third, 1 sixth, and 1 eighth in unit form before an introduction to the unit fraction!
In English Language Arts, students are reading a classic piece of literature to build their understanding of how writers craft stories that capture a reader’s imagination. Students will begin their study of Peter Pan by exploring how readers hold on to a narrative over time when reading the chapter book!
