Check out what we are learning in the B-Hive:
Math– This week we will begin a unit on operations with fractions. Students will learn how to add, subtract, and multiply fractions. Please watch the following slideshows on STUDYJAMS for more information on these topics: http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/math/fractions/add-sub-common-denom.htm and http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/math/fractions/add-sub-mixed-numbers.htm . Students are to complete 30 minutes of First In Math for homework Monday through Thursday evenings. Login information is located inside the front cover of their agendas. Students also have access to “Conceptua Math”, a wonderful on-line math program that is aligned with our math standards. Students can access this program at home as well as at school.
Social Studies/Science– We will begin a unit on SOUND. Please watch the following STUDY JAMS video for more information on this topic: http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/energy-light-sound/sound.htm
Reading: This week we will be continuing to focus on inferencing. Inferencing is making a logical guess based on the information in the text and what you already know. We will also be continuing to read George Washington’s Socks. The students will continue to take practice milestone tests during our small group reading segments. Please remember that we will be going to the Learning Commons every Monday for check-out. Please help your child to remember to bring their library books back to school.
ELA/Writing– This week students will continue to work on their second informational writing paper. They are doing an excellent job independently working on the graphic organizer. This week, they will complete the graphic organizer and begin their first copy. Our skill in grammar is adjectives.
Things to remember:
Please check your child’s agenda for daily updates such as homework, study guides, and quizzes.
Please sign your child’s Thursday folder and your child’s agenda every single Thursday evening.
Please make sure that your child is reading at least 20 minutes each night and indicate this in their reading log folders.
We will check reading logs, agendas, and Thursday folders every Friday morning
