Hello, GATE families!
GATE reading students enjoyed comparing and contrasting versions of The Princess and the Pea. We studied characters' perspectives, including....what if you were the PEA sat upon by the princess? :) Students performed skits of this fractured tale. Here's a peek...
We practiced using apostrophes in contractions and possessives, and students studied shades of meaning between closely related verbs and adjectives. For example, which is the stronger adjective...funny or hilarious?
Finally, we completed a philosophy study today. As always, the conversation was riveting!
GATE math students continued fraction concepts and application. Students who demonstrated mastery of fractions concepts are learning how to add and subtract fractions, as well as multiply to find fraction equivalencies. The fraction unit will conclude next week.
We practiced Continental Math League problems, which is always great conversation and problem-solving practice.
Have a terrific weekend!
