The 3rd and 4th grade GT students are engaged in a Roald Dahl Author study.
We have read the book Esio Trot and discussed the need and importance of developing logic, reasoning, critical and analytical thinking skills in association with this book. We also applied math skills such as; measurement, addition skills, and used weights with on a delicate classroom scale to a gain a better understanding of adding ounces.
We are also reading The Witches (here in Oct.). We'll apply a S.T.E.A.M. project in connection with this reading. We've discussed predicting, as well as making inferences. We have looked up and discussed vocabulary words with every chapter and added them to their online google journal---that they respond to questions prior to the reading in their opening. Then respond through art and writing after the reading in the closing.
