Students in 4th grade are learning about area models and expository writing techniques.  Students in Mrs. Martinez’s math class are using area models to calculate multiplication problems.  This method/tool allow students to visually see the actual size of each computation and learn how to interpret the partial products other than the standard algorithm.  In Ms. Patricia Castillo’s writing class, students are working on their expository writing by elaborating on their assigned topic with examples/experiences.  For their writing prompt, students had to write about a time when they received a gift and explain why it was special to them.
