Students spent the week practicing their subtraction strategies to help them understand how and why we regroup during subtraction. They used base tens as a visual to help them understand how to regroup and then added in the mathematical equation to match. For example: Students also worked on a variety of problems relating to subtraction this week. The problems were multi-stepped and required students to decode the question find clues and create a process for solving. Some of the questions are shared below. What process would you do to find them?

Science Students have finished their brainstorm and designing phase for their flashlight creation. Now students are learning the hard lesson that light can escape through the smallest of holes, even if you think an object is opaque it could be translucent and group collaboration is a difficult process. Next week the students will be presenting their products in a final write up and sales pitch.
