This week, Grade 5 has started a new writing unit in Writing Workshop; personal narratives. Students have been reading existing narrative texts and identifying the features of this genre. During Reading Workshop, students have begun reading “There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom”. They have been learning how to share their thinking as readers and have focused on how to text-to-self connections when reading. Also, in Mathematics, students have been learning how to represent numbers in a variety of ways and have taken part in collaborative problem-solving. In our Unit of Inquiry, students have explored the meanings of vocabulary they will be exposed to during discussions around migration.
