We began the day writing a persuasive advertisement for a pizza. We began the writing process by using a graphic organizer so that we knew all the important considerations needed with our persuasive advertisement.
Next we had French and then Gym.
After first recess we learned about Area during math class. We looked at using grids to find area. We looked at counting squares but this time they could be in half which makes a triangle. So we used our prior knowledge to connect the fact that two halves make a whole.
We discussed a few strategies to keep track of our counting.
1. Count the whole squares first.
2. We can number the squares as we count them
3. Then count the half squares and put a dot on them
We can shade in the triangles first, then count the whole squares then count the half squares.
Students worked on tracing shapes onto grid paper and finding the area.
After second recess and lunch we continued working on our graphic organizers for our new pizza. Some of us moved onto writing the advertisement for our new pizza.
