We compelted our first IB unit!!

This week we completed our first IB unit. For our final project we wrote letters to Rick Perry from the point of view of farmers, construction workers, historical preservationists, environmentalists, and business owners. We tried to convince or not to convince Rick Perry to move forward with building the Trans- Texas Corridor.
Here is some information we learned:
Here is our final project- Our letters to Rick Perry

We also finished learning about addition and subtraction with regrouping. Here is our chart we made together in the classroom:

In reading we focused on main idea of fiction and non-fiction reading. We read a humors story called "Frank was a Monster Who Wanted to Dance". It was pretty silly. You can find it on "Tumble Books" under the CHE library research resources web site:
