News from Mr. Frank’s Class April 2017

Easter Graphic In Mr. Frank’s class we are still doing Singapore Math and have moved on to the second book. This method of math teaching is heavy on learning why we do things in math and has lots of word problems. In class we read the book “Matilda” by Roald Dahl and the children got very into the book, towards the end one could even say they were enthralled. We continue to do a lot of work on reading and we reinforce that with lots of reading in science and social studies. We have been spending more time on writing and delving deeper into different styles of writing. One of the students had his essay chosen to be sent off to represent our school in a national competition. In social studies we have finished up History through the civil war and we are spending more time on a wide variety of skills including map reading. I am trying to widen the scope of what we are studying in all areas in preparation for testing. In language for instance we are spending a little bit of time on each part of speech to make sure the students have a wide enough base for testing. We have also tied in work to the holidays. We did about two days’ worth of special work that was tied into St Patrick’s day. We did special St. Patrick’s reading, writing and math. We also took part in the feast that Mr. John’s class prepared. We have also found some time for Art. I led the students in doing outdoor landscape art and last week we did gesture drawing and we also did a project on positive and negative space.
