On the math unit shelf, we are exploring fractions.  Students are discovering that a fraction is part of a whole. With the materials, they are able to see equivalencies, add and subtract fractions with like denominators and do story problems with fractions. Our fraction materials help the concepts become more concrete.

In Zoology, we’ve concluded our study of the five classifications of vertebrate animals and are now learning about insects. Insects are fun to learn about because they are all around us, especially this time of year as the temperatures get warmer. Students will learn more about their life cycles, parts of an insect and much more. If you or someone you know is an entomologist, please consider contacting us and sharing your knowledge with our students.
