Welcome to Mr. Pirotta's page!
What have we been up to? (March 2017)
Students have been working hard on multiplication and division. We are examining the relationships between the two and finding out strategies to solve division equations and word problems.
We have also been working on a Character Studies unit in reading. We are looking at character motivations, patterns of behavior, and other characteristics in order to analyze and make predictions! We are reading classic books such as Frindle, Dexter The Tough, and Crazy Lady!
In Social Studies, students are learning about the Industrial Revolution and we are making connections to how people make a living in Connecticut today.
Starting soon, students will be coming up with ideas and plans to take control of their learning in Genius Hour!
